Seed Starting Fundamentals

February 28, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm CST

Eager to get a jump start on the growing season? In this class we will discuss how seeds sprout, and how you can re-create the right germination conditions indoors or in your outdoor garden plot. We will talk about seed-starting dates, sanitation, best seed-starting mixes, navigating the information on a seed packet and why wind or a fan is important for young plants!

For the hands-on portion we will:

-demonstrate the correct level of soil moisture, watering methods and planting depth

-show a variety of different containers for planting seeds, and setups for achieving optimum light and temperature

-do germination tests

-go over next seedling’ next steps’ – fertilizing, potting up, and transplanting

You will go home with your own tray of seeds to germinate, as well as more for planting later!
