Posts Tagged ‘Scheduling seed sowing’

Sowing seeds is one of my favorite activities this time of year—especially since it’s still too cool and wet to plant much outside. Hardy perennials are easy. I sow the seeds as soon as I get them, mulch pots with gravel, and set them outside in a protected spot to germinate when they will. I get nice, tough, sturdy seedlings this way with a minimum of fuss. Plus, I’ve grown a wide variety of really fun plants this way, from hardy cyclamen (Cyclamen hederifolium) and ornamental onions (Allium spp.) to Devil’s walking stick (Aralia spinosa) this way.
