Seed Starting for Spring Gardens

Saturday, March 10th, 2018
1:00 PM
My House
10130 Tonawanda Creek Road, Clarence Center, NY

Cost: FREE

Spring is finally arriving and with that so is our seed starting. Come out to my house and bring a dish to pass if you want and we will have lunch and get our seeds started. I will show you how I start my seeds and what techniques I use to get the garden going every year.

Feel free and bring any seeds you want advice on or if you have extra to share.

We will talk about mapping out our veggie garden, starting new beds and natural pesticide options.

Also I would love thoughts on already started heirloom plants in May like tomatoes, peppers, and herbs. Would anyone have interest in buying them if I started a bunch of extras?
