From February to May, my kitchen looked a mess. Egg cartons, wrapped in Saran Wrap, contained seeds and used up all the space on the kitchen table. We ate at the island. While all that worked, I’m not looking to go through it again. Besides, I now have several potted herbs as well as a dozen small pots of geranium cuttings on the kitchen table already. That’s taking up a lot of room. If all goes well, I’ll have fresh herbs all winter and two dozen geraniums to plant in the spring. (Cuttings generally get big and leggy and have to be split again.)
I am in the process of saving the clear plastic boxes the lettuce comes in. Also, I am cutting plastic water bottles about 1/3 of the way from the bottom to make individual pots for seedlings.
So, I need your advice here. I have an unheated sun room. It gets lots of light. Can I winter sow in this room using the same method as you use for outdoor sowing? I’m not sure if it ever goes below 0 celcius but it gets cold. What are your thoughts?
The egg cartons are from last March. The others are some garden pictures from last summer. Nostalgia.
