Wintersowing in drinking cups
There is some discussion regarding using drinking cups. I used them last year. However, this year, I'll used the taller ones. Last year, I had to water them a lot. I got a good gremination, however, I lost quite a few due to drying.
There were easy to plant. At the end, I just planted the entire cup. As a matter of fact, I prefered to plant them then trying to get seedlings from large bottles. Particularly, those with not even walls were pain in the neck.
For planting cups I used the "bulb planter". That was preatty easy. Big chank of soil taken out was replaced with some promix and a content of a cup with seedlings was placed on the top. I used this method in my horrible clay soil "flower beds". It is a new construction, so as you can imagine, my soil is horrible. I'm ammeding it but it will take a while.
Here is my bulb planter. As I said, it was very helpful (lazy me - now \
