I've been trying to find information on fruit and vegetable gardening in zone 8. Specifially Raleigh, NC.
I live in the cold Midwest, and don't really know all that the milder climate entails.
What I really want to know is: can I grow some veggies year round? Maybe in a green house or cold frame? Or maybe a three seasons porch?
Also, do fruit trees, raspberries, strawberries, grapes, blueberries, etc....Do they do well?
I imagine that the milder climate will mean an extended harvest from the veggie garden, but it could be wishful thinking.
Can someone who knows please tell me what the zone 8 climate means for vegetable gardening?
Thanks so much!!
