Sowing Seeds for Spring in Autumn!
Getting ahead – sowing seeds for spring
One way to get a bit ahead for the spring is to sow seeds of hardy annuals now. Sown outside, they will overwinter in a state of dormancy, and then start to grow the moment the soil starts to warm up in the spring. When you stop to think about it for a moment, it makes sense, because that’s what happens naturally! Plants broadcast their seeds in the late summer or autumn, and the seeds stay in the soil overwinter, and then grow in spring. So why would it not work for you?
