Ottawa Horticultural Society
Join Master Gardener Rebecca Last for this presentation all about sex — plant sex, that is, and how home gardeners can save money, have fun and breed new varieties by starting their own seeds. We begin with a discussion of why gardeners might want to start plants from seed. There is an introduction to the lexicon for seed starting and a discussion of the importance of documentation. We talk about sources of seed and viability. Then we discuss equipment and supplies for seed-starting, and what seeds to start where and when (indoors versus outdoors). There are some tips for getting a headstart on your seed-starting, and we end up with some trouble-shooting and the basics of hardening off.
