Wintersowing update--from gardener Jennifer!

Here are some pictures I took of the results of the winter sowing class I attended.

I sowed wildflower seeds & put the milk jug in the snow as directed.
About 6 weeks later or so tiny plants started to grow. Soon they filled the jug. When they got tall enough I transplanted them to a pot & set it on my east facing front steps. Beautiful flowers grew on long stems.

 Now they are dying but some new little green plants are popping up, perhaps to take the place of the other ones.

I planted seeds in 3 jugs @ that class. This is the only one that grew but the results are amazing & I plan to do this again next winter.
Thanks for the class, it was educational & I love the results I got.
