Winter sowing involves starting seeds in plastic containers and creating a mini greenhouse to protect them from the elements and save space from starting seeds indoors. It can also help your flowers get started (and bloom) earlier in the season.
You can do it with a variety of vegetables, but there are many flowers that can be winter sowed! Basically any flower that says to seed “as soon as ground can be worked” is a good candidate to be winter sown and is cold hardy.
I planted: Larkspur, Delphinium, Bells of Ireland, Foxglove, Green Mist, and Cerinthe.
Stay tuned for a few months to see how they turn out!
