I am getting ready to start to WS. But I have a question that I could use some help with.
I am going to start quite a few perennials.(hopefully) and some annuals too.But what I need to know is if there is someplace that can tell me which need light to germinate and which need to be covered.I have found some info but I have to skip all over the web to find it.I was wondering if anyone knows of a place where I can find this info listed together.
Wow! what an excellent resource! I have been struggling with seed germination for a very long time. I thought it was just my inexperience shining through. LoL I knew certain seeds required scarification or stratification but I really minimized the importance of how deep I planted seeds. Until reading this article I didn't realized why I could never get some seeds to germinate!
I'm getting more confused the more information I read so I won't get confused. How do you know what plant is hardy, half hardy, etc.? Wished there was a master list that told you when to start WS of specific seeds/flowers. If there a list that I don't know about for specific Zones?
Pippi... that link i posted above, to the Backyard Gardener... they list what seed is what... and if you are confused on one, just ask.
I know PlantFiles lists them and PF lists the hardiness zones also.
and if you are ever doign a google on a particular seed/plant... in the search box, just type what you are looking for,
say Bronze Fennel [just cuz i've typed that a few times today] and add daves garden into the search, and the link to PF will come up.
