Seeds To Sow in February

posted in: Garden Discussion | 0

Indoors or under glass

It’s that time of year again. Seeds to Sow in January, indoors are still chilling while some are sprouting getting ready for early blooms for 2022. Seeds to sow in February indoors and although may be some missing from the following, are listed below.

With such time sensitivity, it’s not hard to get fully consumed in what wants what & when for a flourishing end result of Summer full of beautiful colourful flowers, for birds, bees & butterflies but also for our precious seeds. Month one has just flown by. Now here it is almost the middle of February, when things start to heat up for a full blown grow on for March, sowing indoors & direct.

An exciting time of year. Personally I get so excited when I’m planning the sowings & gardens. The biggest satisfaction is sharing the end result with everyone who shows interest. Thank you so much to everyone who has supported Saltspring Nursery. Your business is very much appreciated, with pleasure. So enjoy your seeds & may your garden flourish beautifully.

Seeds to Sow in February indoors or under glass as follows are recommended for our Zone 8. Fellow gardeners back east, in Alberta, even parts of the lower mainland and Vancouver Island, basically all Zones lower than 8 can wait a few weeks more than us here on the South Coast of Vancouver Island, BC, Canada.
Most sourcing seed from Saltspring Nursery are savvy gardeners & can figure it out for their own Zone & last frost date. The following list is basically to give a heads up that the time is now.
