Which seeds are you planting at this time?


Here is a way to find out which seeds our friends here are planting at this time of year. Also give your plant zone as welll, as that does make a difference in who is planting what and during winter.

Okay, I'll start with mine.

Light and Dark Purple Larkspur
Long Spur Yellow Columbine

I'm zone 9a.
Next?

Hey there
I have a list. Divided it in 3.
1. wintersowing
2. Direct-sow in spring (in the garden)
3. Potted - for more exotic/tropical (will also sow the seeds in spring when it's warmer)

For #1 I got 17 "new" seeds - meaning, from trades, something I haven't got in my garden yet.
Like... cardiocrinum, blue penstemon, palmer's penstemon, hot papaya echinacea, whiteswan echinacea, white and red pulsatilla (I got the purple one), dwarf blue/white columbine, two kinds of anemone, blue poppy.
17 in total, but will probably choose some from my own seeds...something I love and wanna have more of.

Probably next week, between xmas and NY I will have 5 days off, so I will have time to deal with this matter PROPERLY

Today I decided to plant castor bean seeds. We'll see what they do. First year for me. Not sure if I'm too early or not but I do have lots more seeds if needed.

Anybody planting any seeds in ground at this time? If so, please add yours and your planting zone as well.
Thanks

Hi Guys! I am in zone 6A. Just started winter sowing for the first time. Hoping to have some success, but worried about the weather. So far I have winter sown:
Butternuts
Chestnuts
Concord Grape
Blanda Anenome
Cleome
Butterfly Weed
Skullcap
Sweet Williams
Siberian Iris

In the fall I also planted a bunch of tulips and hyacinths and something the wind has carried my tag away on.

Inside, I have:
Daylilies
An unidentified pepper plant from seeds I snitched from a plant at a restaraunt (very small colorful peppers). If I ever get peppers I will post pics for identification.
Adenium (I hope 5 different colors)
