Winter Sowing of Native Plants


NH Audubon's Massabesic Center
26 Audubon Way
Auburn, NH 03032
United States


Winter is a great time to sow native seeds. Many native seeds need to be exposed to prolonged cold and moist conditions to break their dormancy and germinate. Join us as we introduce you to native plants and guide you through this hands-on, 6-step process.  You'll leave with a pot of native perennial seeds that will grow all year and be ready to plant in your garden next fall.
