I have messed around and not gotten any seeds sown yet this year. Is it too late to wintersow? Should I wait until next year to do the hardy perennials and perennials?

This is only my 2nd year doing this and I am clueless.

Thanks!

Leslie if they need cold moist stratification you might be better of waiting. What ones are you still wanting to sow?
Definitely not to late for annuals, I'm just getting to mine.

Hey Ronnie,
They've all been in the fridge but not moist. I have some shrubs, agapanthus, agastache, alliums, snapdragons, African Daisy, Baptisia, buddleia, nepeta, etc

I don't know about the shrubs or the allium but the others should be fine if they were in the fridge. I would give it a try.

I've just been reading the "Seed Sowing" site with all the pics of the seeds, etc. He basically says all seeds can be sown in spring except hardy annuals and half-hardy annuals (which can but need a little extra care).

Thanks for your responses. Thumbs up

I only did a handful of wintersowing this year and I'm in the same boat as Leslie. I don't have room in the fridge to stratify all that I want to grow so I'm either going to try some under grow lights or late summer sow them since lots of the seeds want warmth, then cold then warmth.

I feel like an idiot since I bought and swapped so many seeds and then didn't get around to planting hardly any! I guess this year will be mostly annuals and next year will be mostly perennials.

A lot of perennials and even shrubs should be fine now. Seeds only need that period of cold if they are originally from a very cold area. A lot of what we grow is from the warm areas of the world. Most everything on Leslie's list does not need that period of cold and you can sow it in your jugs/whatnot now.
Remember, it is dangerous to the environment and ILLEGAL in MANY states (CA is one) to mail plants/bulbs/cuttings in. Let’s all practice Do No Harm while we walk this earth and find other ways to connect to one another through gardening.
