PlantFiles is getting a new look! Just in time for spring, we're rolling out a new look for the best online plants database. It will also work with your smart phones and mobile devices, so now you can take it with you on garden center visits or botanical garden tours. Questions or comments? Please post them here.
was wondering if there was a winter sowing Database here at Dave's. I know there is one for the "other" garden site and have put word out there, but was wondering if there is one here.
I plan on doing a lot of winter sowing in my zone 4 and was wondering who to talk to about sharing my results. I have already started with 2 species of Yarrow and plan to add more everyday.
Is there a place on Daves...or any ideas on how we can start one?
Thanks so much, Robbi
Thanks misty-and Hiya-again! I have that site bookmarked :o) Used to to get my start this year when making my plans but the list is very incomplete. There is one for that other site, but I don't want to step on toes there and would like to see one done by lowest temp so it would be great for DGers in other countries as well.
Thanks for the link though.
Do you plan on winter sowing?
If so, care to share your results with me?
Maybe we can work on this together :o)
Hey, you know I need ALL the help I can get!!!!!!!!! :) I hope they get somewhere to linking all seeds in one forum that can be winter sown! That would be helpful for everyone, not just us newbies! Ya, you started today, right? It was 50 some degrees here today, and 80 sumpin in the green house! I got to open the door and let things "air dry" a bit! :)
Just got a note from the Dave (LOL) we were talking about finding a place to post the results from our winter sowing experiments so future winter sowing gardeners can see what seed works where. He asked that I throw it out there to see what other's thought-so I am tossing it back to you :o)
Bluespiral-just in case you haven't heard-we are doing a swap in January of all winter sown seeds. Dylancgc should be starting the thread soon so keep your eyes out-we would love to have more winter sowers getting into this swap ;o)
Thanks for inviting me, Robbi, but most things I wintersowed last February and March were perennial, so I may not have seed for another year or two of those. I have, however, collected seed from my garden and aquired others in trade that are wintersowable - let me know if you extend the criteria for trading in that swap in that direction.
Off to do some cross-posting to get more votes on this database. I hope it can have its own sticky and that it's organized by zone.
