This is the MOST important step in wintersowing! ONLY buy the name brands of good potting soil!! Brand "X" will turn as hard as a brick, dry out and cause your seeds to die before they ever have a chance to germinate!!!. Don't try to save your pennies by buying inferior types of soil, a.k.a. "dirt". I have used "Miracle-Gro" year after year with excellent results. Finding "Pro-Mix" varies from area to area.

Please re-read "Lessons Learned 1-4", sticky noted at the top of this forum. There are so many "pearls" of wisdom contained in those lessons. Save yourself the aggravation and heartache before you start the wintersowing process.

Oops, make that "Lessons Learned 1-5".
