My 'starting' list

greylady_gardenerDecember 28, 2007

I have been pouring over seeds and planning what to WS and have finally decided that if I don't stop making lists and changing them every day, I will never get anything planted at all! LOL. Not sure exactly when it is that I will do the actual planting, but I have made a final (!:)) list of what I plan to "START" with and here it is:


White birch

mountain ash

golden chain tree

columbine--dark red

columbine--red star

columbine--light blue


hardy geranium--"hope" it is wargrave pink

verbascum--white blush (I believe)

sweet pea

sweet william--sootie

china aster--double pink





thyme--magic carpet


chilean glory vine

rose--Sir Wilfrid Laurier

Now does anyone that has more experience with WS see any glaring mistakes here? Is everything a good candidate for WS. Any and all advice is gratefully appreciated! :)

Lois - I am wintersowing for the first year so certainly not an expert, but I direct sow columbine, larkspur and hollyhocks so I think they will be okay. And I am wintersowing delphinium, hardy geranium and verbascum this year. I am using the wintersown organization's lists for zone 5, you can access them from, or I have the list for zone 5 and can send to you if you like. I would just want to check the impatiens and chilean glory vine. Happy sowing! thehills
