In January 4 & 5, I decided to try an experiment of winter sowing. I winter sowed over 258 cells of different plants, all cells have at least 5 seeds per cell. I covered them over with a plastic cover, which I had punched holes in for air ventilation.
January 26 went to check, 6 types of seeds had germinated!
Februay 6 went to check again, 15 more types of seeds had germintated!
So total out of 258 I have 21 types of seeds germinated in a month.
What is totally amazing is the little plants have pushed their way through the frozen soil!! They also look so healthy and not 'leggy' as they would be indoors under artificial lights.
I am interested to find out exactly what seeds germinate and figure if it is a failure, I only sacrificed 5 seeds for an experiment (if the seeds were large enough to count - some so small that I just listed as 'many').
