Wintersowing Milk jug tops, that is! The morning started out so foggy, cloudy and the afternoon turned sunny and beautiful and at a few minutes till 6 pm, it is 76-80 degrees; depending on which outdoor thermometer you look at, on which side of the house..Lowest last night was aboug 56-60 degrees. I opened up some of the WS milk jug tops yesterday or was it this morning? When I came home from my luncheon, I knew I needed to open up some more tops on the WS milk jugs..Airing them out and watching to make sure they are not in direct sunlight and their soil is kept moist.
What about your wintersowing containers? I will take one of my lupine seedlings and plant it in a larger pot/container to grow before I plant it out. Need to dig up the bronze mums and make many smaller plants out of it. Some I will plant here, some I will plant up for the May plant sale for our garden club. Bee balm the same as it has spread a lot over the winter months..snapdragons too. Larkspurs are included in this group but need to know exactly how to divide or thin them out. A few have bloomed but most haven't because they reseeded over the late Fall and early winter.
How can you tell if the soil has warmed up enough to take a chance to plant early if you don't have a soil thermometer? Do they sell such at Home Depot's garden center?
