Native Seed Starting

We collected native wildflower seed this past summer/fall during our weekly hikes and just recently put them into some soil to overwinter.

We, of course, headed out to our potting shed for the fun!

Inside, with a little heater, we stayed quite toasty and happy.  We put Steve's new potting bench to work and loved having a dedicated space for activities such as this.

Here's a few of the seeds we started:

We did not do any real seed preparation, but rather planted the seeds in a flat....

and put the flat outdoors to let the weather do the work.  We will report back on our success next summer.

  1. Hope your winter sowing is a success. I've yet to do any as the weather in my part of the world is so changeable this winter.
