Definition of fall sowing

Categorized under "General"

Definition as written by Terry:

Seeds that require stratification can often be planted in situe or in a nursery bed in the late fall, where they will undergo the alternate freezing and thawing of the winter months, before germinating in the spring when ground temperatures warm up.

Some seeds, such as Delphinium and Poppy are good candidates for fall-sowing (and in fact, are almost certainly doomed to failure if they are sowed in flats or cell packs for spring transplanting.)
