Time to Winter Sow Your Seeds

By valleylynn

Have you tried winter sowing vegetable and ornamental plant seeds? If not, give it a try this winter. Many seeds, including tomato seeds and your favorite perennial seeds, do unbelievably well using this method.

Do you leave the lid on the jug or not?

If you are talking about the screw on lid, I remove that and through it away. It allows for good air circulation and some moisture from rain/snow to enter the just.
I hope that is what you are asking Ken. : )

I use large water jugs for winter sowing, so the neck is very large. I cover the neck with a piece of plastic and poke small holes in it for ventilation. During heavy rain, it keeps rain water from splashing and displacing the soil and seeds.
