Gardening in the Mountains presents:
Presenter: John Bowen, Extension Master GardenerSM Volunteer
Do you try to grow good seedlings indoors with limited success? Are you out of lights and windowsills? Do you have perennial seeds that are hard to germinate? Do you have the winter blahs and just want to plant something?
In this three-part video on Winter Sowing, John Bowen talks about the materials and processes for planting your seeds outdoors in containers in mid-winter. It’s a low-fuss process that can produce good, strong, spring transplants, even from those difficult-to-germinate seeds requiring extended wet chilling. It uses materials you probably have on hand and it’s a great way to start your own spring vegetable and perennial transplants.
