Winter Seed Sowing

Lanark County Master Gardeners - Winter Seed Sowing
Winter sowing is a fun and easy way to start seeds outside during the winter. Seeds are sown in miniature greenhouses made from recycled plastic containers, and then put outside in the snow and freezing cold. The rest of the work is left to Mother Nature. Once the weather starts to warm in the spring, the seeds will germinate at their own pace, just as in nature. Sounds cool, right? It gets better…
Since the winter sown containers go outside, they don’t take up space in the house. With winter sowing, there’s no need to sterilize seedling flats and trays, you don’t need any special equipment (like lights or heat mats), there’s no risk of the seedlings damping off, and no need to harden them off. Plus, winter sown seedlings are hardier and more robust than seeds sown indoors, which means they have a much higher survival rate. Wow! Are you ready to try winter sowing? Get Busy Gardening has produced this wonderful Step-by-Step Guide. Read more.

Spring has traveled every which way. Winter Solstice is upon us. Presently is the ideal time to begin arranging our greenery enclosures for one year from now. Winter planting is the "Fix It and Forget It" of the cultivating scene, except for a periodic look just to keep an eye on things. I will walk you regulated through the procedure I utilize and have had accomplishment with.

In the event that this is your first endeavor as nurturing a bonsai, then purchasing an instant bonsai tree is a true blue initial step, However, in the event that you are an accomplished bonsai producer, beginning a bonsai from seeds is a decent approach to make characteristic outlines right from the begin, which shockingly, can be accomplished following a couple of years. The procedure of bonsai creation, as opposed to the deciding item is basically a craftsmanship in itself.
