Three planting seasons for vegetable gardening in the Southeastern United States?

Asked by evander (455 points ) July 6th, 2007

I live in the triangle area of North Carolina. We are moving to a new house with gardening space and missed the spring planting season. When can we plant next and what types of vegetables/spices etc. will be successful? Somewhere I thought I heard that there are three times in which to plant in this area--is this so?

Best way to get really good gardening advice is from nearby green-thumb neighbors or local garden center. They will know the ins and outs of when and how to plant veggies, herbs (hard to plant spices in NC :0 ). Much will depend on how much sun you get, orientation of cultivatible land, prevailing wind ,tree protection, local deer issues, etc. IOW, your micro biota. Nice neighbors will usually dig up extra plants for you...gardeners are generous. Compost and manure for soil amendment vital if former owners didn't do it.
