Up there in zone 5, you should be good to go. I doubt warm weather will roll in now!! Scratch that itch!! I started here in zone 7b, but only the ones that need stratification or some other pre treatment. Have fun!

Funny thing is that most Zone 5'rs are feeling like they are in Zone 7 this winter.....

RE: has anyone started wintersowing yet??

Really too. I haven't started yet. I thought I was too busy, but maybe it was week topped out at 60 degrees! My poor iris's got confused, and thought it was spring!

Kim, I think the "little men in the white coats" are coming for my forsythia. they had yellow flowers on them for the third time since Dec. Now it's freezing out again and they are talking about 50's near 60 on Sat. then more rain and maybe a bit of snow on sunday. It's Tuesday that could be a real big storm, maybe a white noreaster. Ya right.
Haven't started yet, vowed I would wait till Feb. like I did last year and ended up with way, way more seedlings than I could even give away.
Maybe I'll start this weekend before the big snowstorm. LOL
