Winter Sowing Crazy!!
Hi fellow gardeners.
I just started "winter sowing" after discovering the technique at wintersown.org
I live in Sorel-Tracy, Quebec. Last summer was the first summer here on our new property. I'm told by locals that our climate here is a Zone 5 however it's shown as a Zone 4 on the map. Any gardening I've done was done last summer here and I think I was quite successful in all that I planted. ( Yay me!! lol )
Because I have a large undertaking WSing will be of great value to me in savings ( $$$ ), selection, quantity of plants and hopefully hardiness.
I started plantiing on February 3 and so far have 32 containers planted.
Foxglove,Lupine, Matthiola Bicornis(Evening scented stock),Persian Poppy,Butterfly bush,Rubeckia Hirta
Question: Because I wasn't planning on Winter Sowing I didn't have a set up arlready in place for keeping my seeded containers. I have presently been placing them on shelves inside our unwinterized shed. Is it alright to keep them there until I can move them outdoors completely before the snow melts?
We currently park our car inside a plastic structure called a Tempo. A temporary winter garage & unheated. Closer to spring I plan to remove the car and use this structure as a " greenhouse " by adding shelving units to hold my containers.
What do you think? Good idea or bad? Your thoughts/advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in Advance.
