A big thanks and a w/s Milkweed question
First off I want to thank you all for being so helpful and opening my eyes to what beauty I can bring by attracting butterflies. It was very, very relaxing chasing butterflies during a horrible economic and emotional year. Thanks again for all your inspiration.
I also have to thank all the folks that sent milkweed seeds either for a SASE or trade. I ended up with quite a handful!
Regarding winter sowing I am curious (never winter sowed) to how close you folks like to seed. I am under the impression that milkweed doesn't like to have its roots bothered. I am going to use 4L milk jugs (1 gal) and 2L (1/2 gal) pop (soda, for another southern translation LOL) bottles.
My other plan is involving stratifying the seed in the fridge between moist paper towels then planting them as soon as I can work the top portion of the ground. I will try to get a few going under my lights but have hundreds and hundreds of milkweed seeds to plant.
Looking forward to viewing all your pics and being able to share more this coming year.
