|Master Gardener, Bev Wagar. This is how to sow.|
Try an easy, inexpensive and fun way to grow lots of milkweed and other native perennials from seed. Planted in mini-greenhouses made from recycled household plastic containers placed outdoors, seeds germinate in the spring and plants are garden-ready by summer.
Join local enthusiasts from the Crown Point Garden Club who will help you get started. Participants need to bring planting containers (translucent milk jugs, litre-sized clear plastic bottles, or deep mushroom tubs), sharp scissors, potting mix, a bucket or large bowl, and seeds. Potting mix will be available to buy for $5 a bag.
The event happens Wed. Feb. 8, 7-9pm at Evergreen's Collaboration Station at 294 James St. North.
We'll be there!
Space is limited and pre-registration is required through EventBrite
