Winter sowing geophytes

Wed, 24 Dec 2008 12:48:08 PST
It would be fine for seeds to wait until spring to sprout, I would just hate
to be wasting my time planting things now that prefered to be planted when
the natural warmth occurred.  As spring is so short here (2 weeks some
years) I'm never sure when that window will appear.

"wise collectors" ... there is a ponder, but I think that would imply one
carries the wisdom to prevent the death of ones collections, but "collector"
fairly presumes a lack of economic or chronometric "sense" in my experience

One of my original attractions to geophytes was do a frustration with
difficult seeds. Without heat most seeds just seem to wait until spring and
natural warmth even in a cool greenhouse. Without even a cool greenhouse the
only one for here that comes to mind would be garlic chives. Not too
inspiring I know.
