Seaside Garden Club’s February Meeting

Seaside Garden Club’s February 11 Meeting

Seaside Garden Club returns from its holiday break with a special program: Seed Starting Tips and Tricks. Have you tried starting plants from seed? Successfully? Like people, seeds have their unique personalities. If you don’t know which seeds like it hot, which need a chill, which need to be soaked, or nicked… you might treat them all the same, leading to germination failure. Does it need light or dark? How long to germinate? Deep planting or surface sowing? When should I start them? Can it be planted in the fall? Indoors or out? What soil? When to transplant? Which containers are best? Why are my seedlings wilting? What about damp off? Fungus gnats? Yikes! MariePatrice Masse and Seed Starting Tips and Tricks to the rescue! Get the answers to these and other questions. You’ll soon be starting seeds like a pro!
