On Sunday I did 3 different Foxgloves in 7 containers and at the end threw all the seeds in together in an eight container. :O) Got lots more to do but waiting for the -20C weather to pass through.

You two are making me start to panic!!I can't believe it is nearly the end of February and I haven't started sowing yet. We were away for most of January, then I came home to a sick child and spent the first half of the month nursing him back to good health. On Friday I went to Walmart - no seed starter. I remembered seeing some Pro-Mix at Canadian Tire and went there - no seed-starter except some small bags by Miracle-Grow which I never buy, but at least there is no fertilizer in it. Today I brought in my containers from the garage so I should be able to do some sowing tomorrow. Of course I am still doing trades. Wish me luck!!

Northerner, loads of time left to winter sow! I still have lots to do here also! I feel panic when I see on the Winter Sown site that people in warmer zones are planting out...and then I realize that we still have so much time before we can actually plant out. I hope to do more winter sowing this weekend and then do annuals in late March/early April. Good luck with your winter sowing!!! and have fun. Let us know how you make out!

RE: More winter sown planting today...anyone else?

I planted a few spinach seeds in a ceramic planter last weekend. I covered them with old windshield washer containers and watered them in.

Currently, it's -20C going to -25C overnight, the last 3 cm of 10 cm of snow is still blowing around in gentle breeze. There is lots of time left for winter sowing. :) I'm thinking that when my potting soil thaws, it will be a good time to get serious about planting.
