Questions you may have about Winter Sowing
Can you use containers other than milk containers?
Yes, but they need to have at least 4" of depth, and an air whole to breath at the top. Also the container needs to be clear to get good sunlight.
I noticed you said nothing about the lid, do I need it?
No, the lid is useless for this project.
Is a clean container important?
Yes, rinse out container thoroughly.
When should I start planting?
You can start as early as January especially for early season cold weather garden plants.March - April for warmer weather garden plants. Will vary a little according to your zone.
Do I ever need to water my mini-green house?
No need to ever water during Winter months, during Spring warm up keep an eye on them till planted as you may need to add a little if you are not seeing condensation on the side of your container.
Will my plants need more air than the container provides?
Your in good shape during the winter months however, plants may need a little more air closer to planting season.
