Advice Please

I have a bunch of those Jiffy greenhouses and am wondering if I can winter sow in them. I don't have anymore room for containers sitting around in the house. Would this work if I cut holes and use the same technique? Thanks.

It probably would Elaine - as long as it's deep enough for several inches of soil.

Well, actually ... they have those little peat pots already in them. That's why I was wondering if you could use the WS technique with them. I'd like to just stick them outside like the rest. Didn't know if anyone else had done this.

I think it would work fine! Peat pots tend to dry out easily for me, so you might want to consider adding some polymer moisture crystals to your WS mix. I think using those crystals is why I had reasonable luck in my salad container seed trays for WS... only an inch or two of soil, but the crystals helped keep it moist.

Thanks! I'll give it a try. Can't hurt. Might learn something new.
