Mid to late January
Try sprouting a test sample of leftover seeds before ordering new seeds for spring. (Roll up 10 seeds in a damp paper towel. Keep moist and warm. Check for germination in a week. If fewer than half sprout, order fresh seed.)
Begin to fertilize houseplants as they show signs of new growth. Plants that are still resting should receive no fertilizers yet.
