Can not find my file on winter sowing that we did on DG and I know about 7 or 8 of us tried to winter sow sweet shrub. Does anyone on this list have instructions for beginners on how to winter sow seeds? If so I would appreciate your sharing. Thanks in advance. My friend lives in MS and wants to try it.

Were you successful? Sweet Shrub can be hard to germinate.

The earlier link has lots of good info and there a ton of threads here at ATP on winter sowing.
