        WHAT IS THE


        Winter sowing is a technique for starting seeds outdoors during the winter in mini greenhouses made from recycled containers. For hardy plants and those that need a period of cold stratification, this method works especially well.

        Here are the general steps for winter sowing varieties suitable for this method.

        Collect Containers

        Use clear or translucent containers with lids, such as milk jugs, water bottles, or salad containers. Ensure they are clean and can be sealed or closed.

        Prepare Containers

        Drill drainage holes at the bottom and a few ventilation holes on the top or sides of each container. For milk jugs or similar, cut horizontally almost all the way through, leaving a small section as a hinge.


        Use a good-quality potting mix or seed-starting mix. Moisten the soil before filling your containers to just below the cut or the top.


        Plant the seeds at the depth recommended on the seed packet. Some seeds need light to germinate and should be sown on the surface, while others need to be covered.


        Label each container with the name of the plant and the sowing date using a waterproof marker. This is crucial for keeping track of what you've planted.


        Gently water the seeds into the dirt. The soil should be moist but not waterlogged.


        Close the lids or cover the containers. If you've cut the containers, use duct tape to seal the edges, but leave the top hinge open for ventilation.


        Place the containers outside in a spot where they'll be exposed to rain and snow but not to high winds or heavy foot traffic. Ensure they receive sufficient sunlight as the days lengthen.

        Monitor and Care

        Check the containers periodically. They may need additional watering if the soil starts to dry out, especially as temperatures rise in the spring.


        Once the seedlings have grown and the weather has warmed up, you can transplant them into your garden. Harden off the seedlings by gradually exposing them to outside conditions for longer periods each day over a week or so.

        Remember, the success of winter sowing can vary depending on your local climate and the specific needs of the plants you're sowing. Some seeds may require stratification (a period of cold) to germinate, while others are just hardy enough to survive the winter conditions.
        Some popular questions

        How long will it last in storage?

        • Room Temperature: 3-7 Years
        • Refrigerated: 5-10 Years
        • Frozen (Recommended): 15-25 Years

        Remember... Treat all seeds as if they're a living organism. They will naturally lose viability over time and it's your job to make sure that they've got the best environment to survive (We've already provided the safest packaging).

        The viability of seeds will vary for each type, but our heat sealed and moisture proof resealable packaging will help to keep them healthy for years to come.

        At room temperature, you can expect your seeds to survive from 3-7 years. Stored in a cooler climate, you could easily expect a lifespan of 7 to 25 years. (especially when frozen)

        How do I know what will grow where I live?

        INDOOR: This kit includes individual seed packets that can be used used anywhere indoors.

        OUTDOOR: The USDA website provides a map that can help you determine your specific growing zone.

        The Survival Seeds Super Vault is suitable for USDA Zones 4-9, but may be suitable for other regions if started earlier indoors or using a greenhouse growing method.
