As you say, Steve, "The problem is when winter is in your area." This one
(attached) was helping weed one of my seedling beds on October 13, 2006. --

I thought that everyone knew they hibernated during the winter. The problem
is when winter is in your area. I am not sure exactly when they go under,
but they do come back shortly after everything starts growing in the spring.
Where I grew up, this was much after Punxsutawney Phil makes his (forced)
February 2nd appearance to tell us spring ain't here yet.

I don't know when they hibernate, Betty, but I know how to get rid of them,
if you have a problem. -- Griff

The one time I deliberately sprouted seed in the fall, the seed did not
Since I hold many of my pots over, I'm pretty sure I've seen more sprouts in
the fall. Can't seem to remember to check on them and they get lost in the
forest! Bye spring it's hard to remember which pots had them. The seed

Anyone know when groundhogs hibernate? Is it constant?

ubject: HYB: sprouts
Just finished planting seeds today -- 2 months later than usual. Imagine
urprise when, opening the winter frame (a mesh-topped enclosure open to the
eather), I found two sprouts in a pot left over from a previous year. One
as three leaves, the other two, and both are less than 3 inches tall, so I
ust conclude that they have sprouted during the last couple of weeks. Never
ad fall sprouts before. The pot was completely shaded, so I moved it to the
pposite wall of the enclosure, where it will get winter sun and warmth
eflected off the wooden wall, and gave it a light covering of pine straw.
he low was 22 last night. It warmed up to 39 today. Plum Wine bloomed
