I've found some nice resources in my search for winter sown plants. I thought I'd share some.

1. Daves garden has a database of plants and whether they were successful or not. I don't think its the best format for searching but it helps

http://davesgarden.com/guides/...

2. Garden web has a list of common plants with the zones even! I love it!

http://faq.gardenweb.com/discu...

3. I haven't visited this one too often, mainly because I forgot about it! But I'm going back today and check it out again

www.wintersow.org

4. George just has some good ideas and common sense with a shorter list of plants.

That's what I hear Caroline. This is only my 4th year of winter sowing and when I embark on a new project I become obsessive with researching! Each successive site I find more and different information, new tips and tricks, and different plants. I don't ever take one single site as the only one to follow. I think this is my way of compensating for an un-creative mind! Hilarious! Hilarious!

Yes, there are tidbits of information on many sites.
I also like Dr. Deno's database and the Tom Clothier one too.
