CANCELED – Winter Seed Sowing for Beginners

Saturday, February 19
10:30am – 12pm
$10 per person

Have you 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 pretty darn easy! Join us on a Saturday morning 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 with many years of winter sowing under her belt, will explain and demonstrate the process. After this presentation, you will be ready to start some mini greenhouses of your own.

What do you need to get started? Five translucent one-gallon milk or water jugs (rinsed out; caps not needed), a hefty pair of scissors, soilless planting mix, twisty-tie material and plant tags and certainly seeds for those plants that sound interesting to you!  Please bring jugs with you and some seeds you’d like to try–we’ll supply the rest!
