Iíll be wintersowing or artificially stratifying wild ginger, assorted violets, phlox, and geraniums, etc. the Wild Ginger is the only seed I have to artificially start with warm-moist stratification. The rest will be winter-sown.

But like dapjwy, I havenít yet set out my seeds. Hopefully I can start this weekend. Most of my seeds have a short stratification period, so Iím still good.
Quite a few of us have been away too long--me included. Glad to see you back. I wish you success on your winter sowing. Nice assortment of natives for that setting.

I am late again this year--or, about average based on past years. I'm hoping I get my seeds sorted and sowed within the next two weeks.
