Starting Seeds Indoors

 

There are two seasonal diversions that can ease the bite of any winter. One is the January thaw. The other is the seed catalogues. ~Hal Borland

We’ll discuss things to consider when purchasing seed, containers, and growing media. We will learn how to apply important techniques in the sowing and growing of seedlings, and how to successfully plant the seedlings outdoors.
