Common Flower Garden Perennials for Winter Sowing, zones included

trudi_dJanuary 1, 2013


Here's a list of common garden perennials, I've listed the plants by common names with their zone ranges included. The zone ranges are "suggested", many of these plants will be hardier beyond the zone listing.

As always, you can do a bit of research on the seeds you want to try germinating with Winter Sowing to learn more about the plant and see if it will be happy in your own garden. If you're unsure as to any seed's ability to germinate via Winter Sowing where you are then do hold some seeds back to sow indoors, later on in the season compare the differences between your Winter Sown plants and indoor-started plants. Learn from your experiences and use your knowledge to grow a better and better garden each year.
