As you can see, I planted lots of seeds in gallon-size milk and water jugs last January. They were watered by rain, sleet, ice, and snow. In spring, almost all of the seeds germinated. Here are just a few of them:Nicotiana ‘Fragrant Cloud’ (this nocturnal creature releases its strong, infinitely-inhalable scent from dusk until dawn)…
Lupines (I winter-sow these every year, and then add them to the existing Lupine-patch in the Serpentine Garden)…
How’d your own winter-sowing efforts pay off? Think you’ll use the method again? Talk to me in the comments field below!
