Southern Ohio here. My first year to WS. 16 containers. nearly all are up. except my tomatoes. should I be worried? I am.

RE: Ohio Valley Winter Sowers - wassup?

Around 300 tomato plants, 70 banana and other kinds of peppers, asters, zinnas, dahlia, euclyptus, bells of Ireland. I've got a bunch of other stuff I haven't gotten started yet.


RE: Ohio Valley Winter Sowers - wassup?

my tomatoes aren't up yet, but I'm not worried. they've got plenty of time. I have over 200 containers out, and prob 20-30 have germinated.

I heard snow for easter????

I lost my calendulas and eyeball plant. Luckily, the winter sowing family sent me some eyeball, so I'm back in business.

Thus far I have only planted out dianthus. This weather is nuts. I expect the cold dips but not the prolonged March weather.

I'm in Cincinnati. 60 WS containers, most have a least a few sprouts, and quite a few ready to go in the ground. I've only planted out annual alyssum and clarkia and then that freeze hit. The alyssum is toast but a few clarkia might make it but remain questionable. After that have been reluctant to plant out but it seems summer is here again.

I want to get to the Cincinnati Flower Show this weekend so not much planting out will be done yet again.


RE: Ohio Valley Winter Sowers - wassup?

I have larkspur, rudbeckia, lupines & frankly, some things I failed to label & I have no idea what they are!

RE: Ohio Valley Winter Sowers - wassup?

Indiana here. Off the top of my head -- I have marigold, tomatoes, snap pea, larkspur, blanket flower, purple coneflower, black eye susans, coral bells, lobelia, globeflower, cosmos, basil,... Actually it's a lot easier for me to list what that hasn't sprouted: joe pye weed, butterfly weed, siberian iris, white penstemon, cilantro, rosemary.
