WS in Zone 10b (Sunset Zone 23)?

12 years ago

I'm totally new here (hi!) and was curious if people winter sow in zone 10? I know it says it's possible on the site, but I was looking through the forums and couldn't find much. I just moved from an apartment (without even a balcony) to a house with a large shady backyard with only a few (neglected) trees, so I have a lot of space to fill on a tight budget. Winter sowing seems like a pretty great way to get started, but I have a notorious brown thumb, and am scared that I'll just waste money on seeds and soil without success! I was looking at the zone wars, and it seemed like maybe people in warmer climates don't winter sow -- is there a reason?
