Winter Sowing of Native Seeds

Winter Sowing is a fun and easy method of getting your native plant seeds on their way to blooming long before spring arrives. We will cover the basics of winter sowing, the benefits of native plants, stratification times, soil, light and water requirements, ideal site locations, and container options. In this class, you will choose seeds to sow and prepare them for the cold stratification process outdoors. Meet in Room A138 in the Stanley P. Ash Building on MCC's Sidney campus for all activities. Students will go home with to containers sown with native flower seeds and a packet of informational resources. Containers, soil mix, and seeds will be provided free of charge, but we recommend pre-registration to ensure enough supplies. Click and complete the Winter Sowing Registration Form to pre-register. Registration ends Saturday, November 12th. Contact Sarah Boyd at for more information or questions.
