Some gardeners are sad to see the colder months come as winter approaches, because they feel as though they have to put their hobby into hibernation for the winter. In fact that’s not necessarily true.
Winter sowing allows the opportunity to start preparing our spring and summer crops, all while keeping your hobby alive and well even after the first snowfall. The best news is that you don’t need a fancy greenhouse to do it. In fact, you don’t need a greenhouse at all. Just a few inexpensive items is all it takes to have you all set for spring!
What is Winter Sowing?
The use of plastic jugs, such as milk or water containers, is a great way to do some winter sowing. If set up properly they will act as an individual homemade greenhouse for the seed of your choice.
It’s a great way to sow seeds at low cost and with very little maintenance. It’s a great way of recycling your used milk or water jugs, and you only need a few other simple items.
If you plan on doing this each year, start saving your milk or water jugs. Ask friends to save their for
