winter seed sowing

has anyone ever done winter sowing? if so what was successful?



Hi Grindle, I sowed spring cabbage seeds and spinach seeds last weekend but it's my first time so I'm afraid I can't comment on the success yet.

I have sown some cauliflower seeds which are showing themselves now. I intend to overwinter them in a cold frame hoping for some early ones next year.

I always plant sweet peas in October and over winter them, they make strong plants and get off to a flying start when planted out in early spring.

Sorry what does over winter mean is this covering them up in cold frame, straw and so on.
