Master Gardener Robert Pavlis has prepared a winter sowing video demonstrating the basics of selecting containers, preparing them and planting seeds.
Last year at this time I wrote about the practice of winter sowing -- that is planting seeds in containers and placing them outside to overwinter. See Sow seeds of Joy, but sow them in winter.

Gardeners in my part of the province have been busy digging. Digging snow, that is. A good layer of snow offers welcome protection for sleeping plants, but snow is useful too for settling in seed containers. So get busy. Check your stash of seeds and find some containers, plant and wait for the magic, come spring!
