Winter Sowing

A sunshiny afternoon gave me a nice day to winter sow a few seeds.  I'm not doing much this year.  Just some native annual lemon beebalm.  I had great results starting it this way last year that I thought I'd do it again.  I'm also hoping some of the beebalm self seeded in the garden beds.


  1. I really enjoy doing the winter's nice to be able to "garden" at this time of year--and it's fun to see them popping up when conditions are right.
    Have fun

  2. I had never heard of Beebalm, and so like always, looked it up. Monarda (Bergamot), one of my favourite perennials, but having said you have the annual, is it the spotted variety?

    1. Hello! I updated my post with a link to the lemon beebalm info from my state's wildflower list.
      I'm really hoping it will tuck itself into my garden in a lot of places. Thanks for visiting.

  3. It's a great, easy way to get a lot of plants. :o)


  4. Good luck! No winter sowing here but maybe next year. I love to do it.

  5. I'm so glad you reminded me. I have never winter sewn before but I have some ground cherries that I want to start. I will raid the recycle bag as soon as I log off to rescue some milk containers. Thanks
