Tokyo Urban Garden Planting Calendar – Autumn

Summer is over, summer veggies are gone. So now is the time to plant our late autumn and winter Tokyo urban garden.

Whether you`re an accomplished gardener or a novice, gardening is a great opportunity to partner with Mother Nature and bond with family and friends. Gardening teaches patience, care and offers a pathway to better health and nutrition.

Our advice for novice gardeners is to start small and simple. Begin with easy to grow foods like herbs, lettuce and spinach; review our tips on Balcony Gardening, and get started.

If starting this Autumn we recommend you protect your plants from the cold with these vinyl greenhouses that you can purchase at D2 Home Center in Mita,on Amazon Japan

D2 or Super Viva (a home center) also carries a nice selection of seedlings, seasonal seed showcase and a variety of planters and soil. Stop in and start your urban garden today.
