FULL: Seed Starting Demo with Mary & Katelyn

March 7, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Registration Required. Do you want to grow varieties that you can never find in 6 packs? Grow them yourself with our help! Greensgrow founder Mary Seton Corboy and our Farmer Katelyn team up to help you get started this year. Limited seats.

They will demonstrate how to start a tray and discuss what to choose for your location, planning and planting timing, what kind of soil to use and why, soil temperature and watering for success. They will show you how to identify leaf sets and true leaves, when to transplant and how to harden off your starts. We’ll touch on nutrients, feeding, compost and vermiculture.

Everyone will get a handout of our planting calendar with recommended seed varieties for our region. We’ll have seeds and seed starting supplies for sale in the greenhouse to get you started.

If you want a more hands on class, check out the workshop on March 21.
