This year I started winter sowing early December because I went to Spain for a month (I'm still in Spain) and I will winter sow the seeds of this piggy swap and other seeds that arrived after I left Belgium, late January. I place the containers outdoors in a weighted box and in my unheated greenhouse on the west side and my unheated greenhouse on the north side. I can easily start winter sowing early December because my zone 6 is cold enough to prevent cold germinating plants to germinate too early. In zone 7/8 you can start at the end of December. If seeds do not need a long (3 months) period, you can wintersow until February in your zone.
I also start seeds indoors. Mainly annuals that are not cold hardy. I never use grow lights. Slow growing ones I sow indoors early January (not possible for me this year), but usually I start sowing indoors in March or April.
Here is the article I wrote about sowing in vermiculite.
If you have further questions, don't hestitate to ask me.
