15 years ago

Sorry if there's a post already out here like this for zone 6, but I couldn't find one when I searched.

So far, I have wintersown:

Spinach Monstruex de Viroflay

Cicoria Di Verona Radicchio

Lettuce Chartwell

Coreopsis Early Sunrise

Mystery Coreopsis seed from MIL's plant

Hibiscus Militaris

Hardy Hibiscus (Mixed color seeds from ebay)

Crape Myrtle

Lavender Vera

Lavender English Spike

Lavender Lady


Rose Shrub seeds (from backyard)

Poppy Pink Peony

Petunia Mixed


Yarrow Summer Pastels Mixed

Armeria Bees Mixed




Dwarf Bachelor Buttons

Blue Flower Mix

Dwarf Thyme

Calendula Pink Surprise

Cleome Rose Queen

Blue Flax

English Daisy Rose Carpet

Black-eyed Susan Cherokee Sunset

Dusty Miller

Snap Dragons Tall Deluxe (seeds harvested from WS snaps)

I'm waiting a little longer to do heirloom tomatoes, herbs, and a few more annuals.

    Clumsygardener, you've got quite a lot going. You'll have to let me know how the broccoli and cauliflower turn out. I haven't WS'd those veggies yet. Maybe next year. I've got too many seeds as it is, for now.

    Winter sown plants for plant swap in Zone 5

    Thanks for the concern over my plants PVick. I can see my pretty budded out weeping cherry tree right next to the kitchen window. It is hung with ice drips then adorned with snow. I have no hope I'll get to enjoy those blossoms this spring. But what I did cover should be fine (fingers crossed). Glad I went to the trouble, my friend didn't cover anything and I am feeling bad for her. Carrie, I saw on TV that you were having a lot of rain, even tornado reports no? If your area is really dry perhaps the rain will soak in as soon as the rain stops. How long is it supposed to rain? Hope it all turns out okay for your gardens. Just stepped outside and took pictures of the ice hanging in my trees. Looks like a beautiful winter wonderland that would be appropriate in January! I know Deanna, the weather here in Kansas is unpredictable all the time. We have all the extremes of weather. Oh dear, the news is on and they are predicting another snowstorm Monday night into Tuesday. Is there no end to this madness? Trowelgal

    My First Winter Sown Seeds Have Germinated; When Do I Plant Them?


    Comments (2)
    Just_me: Last year was my first year, and I put my containers in several spots, some being in full sun, just to see what worked best. The containers didn't care where they were, they all grew equally. The only difference I found was that the ones in full sun dried out a lot quicker, and if I didn't either take the top off during the day if it got too warm they fried. I too would wait until they get their first true leaves. They will be a little stronger come plant out time. Good luck!

    I have been trying various methods over the last few nights. Rolled up damp newspaper was my least favorite/effective method. White wine worked fairly well. Oil in a fishy smelling cat food can also worked well. But I tried the soy sauce/oil last night, and that was by far the most effective. I got about a dozen dead earwigs a night with the wine and oil/cat food. With the soy sauce method I probably had 200 dead earwigs overnight. A friend also told me 30-40 drops of Grapefruit Seed Extract mixed in a small spray bottle and sprayed on and around the plants keeps them away. Hopefully with these two methods, I can get rid of them!

    I am off to a slow start this year, 21 jugs so far. I really have to control how much I sow this year as I'm running out of space again, and just can't handle maintenance on yet more beds. Just keeping up with watering took most of my time in last year's drought. I do suspect that a fair number of my plants will bite the dust over winter, though, after the stress of the summer heat. I'm planning mostly annuals this year, so I haven't even thought much about those yet. So far, some multiple jugs:
    burgundy gaillardia
    lavender munstead
    rose campion
    delphinium summer mix
    verbena bonariensis
    more rudbeckia (prarie sun)
    bachelor buttons

So here is my list (some things I am only listing once because of the different kinds & colors)
    balsam impatiens
    cone flowers
    spider flower (cleome)
    morning glory
    holly hocks
    shasta daisy
    mexican hat
    blackeyed susan

    blackberry lily
    cypress vine
    day lily
    ozark blue star
    butterfly bush
    scarlet flax
    maltese cross
    gaillardia goblin liatris
    Now I still have alot of planting to do, & when all these babies grow up I will have to learn the skill of seed saving so I can pass seeds on to others who get the WS bug. '') Jan

    I'm a newbie this year, with little space to garden, but the concept really intrigued me so I had to give it a go. So far I've planted:
    Sweet William (sprouting already)
    Poppy (also sprouting)
    Bachelor Buttons (sprouting as well)
    Chinese Coins
    Sweet Pea
    Butterfly Weed
    And this last week:
    Morning Glories

    Ever since I noticed the first sprouts, I've been checking the containers daily, I'm as excited as a kid right before Christmas.
    I've not had any luck with saponaria in the past, so I am curious to see if this method will do it.

    I WSd some herbs today. The only one I'm worried about is lemon grass, as I don't know if it's too early for it. I saved a few back though.

    Some of you other zone 6'ers are making me feel like a slacker. You have some SERIOUS lists.


    Dill Fernleaf
    Lemon Grass
    Flat Parsley
    St. John's Wort

    I wasn't able to get any chives to germinate last year. Hopefully it will happen this time.

    A lot of the seeds I'm sowing this year are 5-6 years old, so I've got my fingers crossed. I'm a serious seed addict and my eyes are most definitely too big for my garden!

    Still have a bunch of annuals to sow, and some more veggies too.
