wintersown plants


In most of my wintersown jugs and tubs, etc. I have hundreds of little plants up and doing well. But this is my first try at this--and I'll definitely do it again--but I'm not sure what my next step is. After plants have emerged in one of your wintersown jugs and you've opened the cover a bit to let some of the moisture out (in my case it is saran wrap with holes and taped over the jug's opening), then what? At what point do you completely remove the saran wrap off the opening of the jug and when do you open the top 1/2 completely?

Advice appreciated.

Mine are starting to sprout also. It's fun isn't it? The important thing to remember is not to plant until all danger of frost has passed. For me that's mid May. Check what your last projected frost date is before planting. The other thing is they need to get a strong root system so keeping them in their containers a little longer won't hurt them.

Hey b!!!!!!!


Bali you need to be patient, I had a bunch last year that didn't show anything, but later on did. So just wait for awhile, right Mandy?

That's right. Some started sprouting in March, others in May. Flowers4ever, who originally started the Wintersowers Group, told me to keep the containers another year if they hadn't popped up. Some perennials need extra time. All but 7 of the 100 I wintersowed last year sprouted. Now not all made it when I transplanted them and some got eaten by rabbits, squirrels, deer or whatever but I still got quite a bit to have made it worthwhile. And the other day when I was walking around our property I was thrilled to see both some of the perennials and annuals I wintersowed returning!

That's great Mandy! Our last frost date here is April 15th, but some of these babies are gonna be to small to put out then in my opinion. A heavy rain would definately kill some of them off. I may scoop out into larger pots in a covered area until they get larger.

bali, patience is the opposite of impatience, which is what we suffer from

Lol, I know my patience can be lost too many times when I'm waiting for plants to grow. Think alot of us have that problem. I have a wintersown album in my pictures if anyone would like to see some of what bloomed for me last year. Not too many of the perennials bloomed last year so I'm really looking forward to seeing them this year. There are a few perennials pictured, I was happy also to see DKline's Rudebeckia's had reseeded themselves. That is really a beautiful variety.
