Winter Sowing Annuals

By chelle

Did you know that you could sow your annual seeds in winter? I didn't, but now I'm hooked on winter sowing not only perennials and shrubs, but also many of my annuals. The following ideas can help to keep your garden chock-full of blooms all season long, too, and it's so easy to do!

Great article, Chelle, and great timing! I am almost getting into a panic about starting my seeds, and i have a lot to do. I was getting worried about space under lights but now I will try WS again and your list really helps! I'll save the lights for the touchy stuff (lisianthus) and veggies.

Thanks!

Heh-heh, Arlene, right now the winter sowing is about all I can do, garden-wise. I'll go overboard with it, as usual, but it sure helps pass the winter. Whistling

Great job on the article, Chelle.

I was sorting through my seed stash today, picking out some things to wintersow this year. This will be year 9 of wintersowing for me.

Thanks so much for the kind words, thumbs-ups and Acorn s! I tip my hat to you.

For those of you that read this early-on and wondered about the confusing sowing link; it's since been replaced with this one The thread "Sowing Seed In Vermiculite Using Lidded Containers..." in Winter Sowing Annuals .

Happy sowing! Smiling
