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!
About MariePatrice Masse, M.Ed.: MariePatrice’s years of focus on personal growth and transformation are easily translated to her passion for seeds and plants.

Topics in this entertaining idea-filled, PowerPoint lecture include: honoring the historical context of a garden site, creating a feeling of authenticity and charm in a New England garden and getting designer results in a DIY garden.
