REGISTRATION CLOSED – Virtual Winter Seed Sowing for Beginners

Virtual program offered online via Zoom
Tuesday, February 1, 2022
6:30pm-8pm CST via Zoom

Registration is required

Ever wished you could start seeds for your garden without all the muss and fuss of trying to sustain them indoors during the winter? There is a way and it’s easy! Join us on a Tuesday evening and learn the techniques of winter sowing in miniature “greenhouses” made out of gallon milk/water jugs. Cantigny senior horticulturist, Liz Omura, and Ellen Meyer, Cantigny volunteer, will explain and demonstrate the process. After this presentation, you’ll be ready to start some mini greenhouses of your own.

What you will need: Translucent one-gallon milk or water jugs (rinsed out; caps not needed); strong scissors; soilless planting mix; twisty-tie material; plant tags; and seeds for the plants you want to grow!
