|Large winter sowing containers|
This week, I'm starting to sow squash and cucumbers.
I like to sow these later in the season because larger seeds can sometimes rot if they're winter sown too early.
Deep containers are great for winter sowing squash, cucumbers and other fast growing climber seedlings.
They give the seedlings plenty of head room to grow before I have to worry about removing the lids permanently.
As a general rule, the larger the seed I winter sow, the larger the container I will use.
