Get a head start on the spring vegetable planning 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. Tomatoes and peppers, two difficult to germinate seeds, require pre-treatment as do 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 which 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. (Taught by Patrick Greenwald)
