FPF Class: Starting Seeds Indoors

  • Dennis & Judith Jones Visitor and Education Center 5595 Grand Drive St. Louis, MO, 63112 United States (map)

Get a head start on the spring vegetable planting season by starting seeds indoors this winter. Seeds started indoors are less vulnerable to pests, mature earlier in the season and are less prone to competition from weeds. This class will equip participants with the right knowledge and tools to start common vegetables and difficult to germinate seeds which require pre-treatment (such as native wildflowers). Learn what steps need to be taken to collect and prepare seeds for germination and what "tools" are required for successful healthy germination and transplanting plants into your garden. Participants will receive a packet of vegetable seeds and two native wildflower seed packets that have been prepared for germination. Discover that expensive supplies are not necessary, and that common household items can be used to sprout seeds indoors this winter.
