More Sprouts

I’ve started my springtime routine of checking my wintersowing containers every day. More seeds have germinated. All of which will be planted in my plot at Rutgers Gardens. New today are statice, Gold Coast (yellow) and Roselight (pink), cosmos Sonata Pink and Yellow Garden and Signet Marigolds, Lemon Gem (yellow).

I’m a little concerned about the cosmos. Last year, cosmos germinated well but then died off when the weather turned chilly for a short while. The temperatures are still rather cool (50’s F, 10’s C) during the day with nighttime temperatures even lower so I am puzzled as to why they have even germinated.
