All From a Little Seed, with Rebecca Last

February 16, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

All From a Little Seed (How to start seeds), with OHS member and Master Gardener Rebecca Last
This presentation is all about SEX — plant sex, that is, and how home gardeners can save money, have fun and breed new varieties by starting their own seeds. We begin with a discussion of why gardeners might want to start plants from seed. There is an introduction to the lexicon for seed starting and a discussion of the importance of documentation. We talk about sources of seed, and viability. Then we discuss equipment and supplies for seed-starting, and what seeds to start where and when (indoors versus outdoors). There are some tips for getting a head-start on your seed-starting, and we end up with some trouble-shooting and the basics of hardening off. Some tips for asexual propagation may also be discussed (e.g. from leaf cuttings).
