Spring Sowing

Now that it is spring do I continue to sow in the milk jugs or should I use small open containers to sow the seeds in? I think the temps will be too warm for the milk jugs. Or do I continue to use milk jugs just keep them in full shade? ?

RE: Spring Sowing

Milk jugs do keep the "environment" a bit humid and moist - good for germinating seeds. Closed, they also keep critters and birds from feasting on your seeds. I think your idea of keeping the containers in a shady location (not full FULL shade though - - -you want some dabbled sunlight)is the way to go. I sow in containers like this till fall.

Yes, dappled sun or early morning sun only with bright shade after that, and extra vents in the top of the jug.
