It was a beautiful day for winter sowing today, sunny and 68*. I set up on my deck to finish winter sowing my perennials, and checked the containers already done earlier this month . I winter sowed a hollyhock mix on 1/12/11 and they have already germinated in both containers. Considering how cold it's been, with today being the warmest day in a long time, I was quite surprised to see the little green leaves in the 2 containers.
Cem9165...Cracks me up whenever you southerners talk about "winter sowing".
Please take that comment with the humor with which it was intended...LOL
I have family in GA...
68° is Summer and up here, we'd be outside in shorts and tank tops. We're currently balmy at -1°, which is about 30 degrees warmer than normal for this time of year. I've winter sown at -40 in January, but now wait till around March to start.
Congrats on the sprouts!
