Thought it would be fun to have a look at wintersowing examples. I don't label the jug like this, but had did this one special for an example at a Hobby & Craft trade show

When they are ready, your little seeds will turn into chia pets

Your WS is far neater than mine.
I use heavy scissors and do a drainage gash near bottom of jug.
Then cut most of way around so top is still attached.
Then fill with soil,water it, seed it and scrawl date and seed name.
Then I tuck top of jug into bottom securely and place outside.
I also note in my garden journal what I have started.
I have about 30 scattered around the yard so they will get sun when snow melts.
I have a large deep basin from Garden Retreat which I am going to use for the next batch. That will make it easier to water from the bottom.

Added note: The deep basin was a mistake because when the snow melted and/or it rained ----the jugs became water logged.
Have shallow trays for this coming season!

My jugs are cold!

They're in these bins, buried in the snow.

I can't remember. I've only done about 10 jugs. I know I did a couple of dianthus, a white echinacea,,.... don't remember what else.

I just did some wintersowing earlier.......I'm a bit behind this year but just got some poppies done. Instead of using jugs I use clear ziplock freezer bags. This will be the third year I've used them and they work great.

That's a great idea with the ziplock bags. Do you put the bags into big plastic container or just toss them into flower bed?

Usually I just toss them out there, but the bags need to be ziplock brand though. I've tried cheaper store brands but the plastic is too thin so it collapses on top of your seedlings and then with the plastic right on top of them they get fried really fast.

Joanne I love your milk jug at the beginning of the thread. I'm afraid mine are rather drab in comparison. : )
I'll go out and get a picture of mine to post.

I don't label them like that normally. That one was done up for a hobby & craft show in October, so I "prettied" it up for a display

I've got 12 measly jugs buried under the snow (first-timer winter sowing). I am quite sure mine are not that attractive. If I can get even a few to germinate, I'll be happy.

Right now I have 2. Sometime by middle of April I'll have 20-30. I do alot of annuals for my planters so it's a mixture of winter and spring sowing.
