Winter Sowing in a greenhouse

seedwizard(z3MB)August 13, 2007


I would like to winter sow annuals and perennials and put them in a large greenhouse on shelves. Presently the house has no door. Would this be a good idea or will they fry? If needed we can put the door back on. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I am in zone 3 would some seeds be better than others.

A unheated greenhouse is ideal, the only thing is that you'll have to do the watering.

What I do is wintersow outdoors as usual, once you see sprouts, take their tops off and take them into the g/h to further their growth.

It gets really hot in the g/h, make sure you check on them everyday.

Its a good idea to shut the door and all vents if a early spring frost is predicted.
