Growing a plant from seed to seedling to maturity is a bit magical, very satisfying, and always educational. With a talk and hands-on activities, Sean Halloran will explain seed biology, conditions needed to trigger germination, and techniques for starting various types of plants— annuals (including vegetables), trees, and shrubs— from seeds. This workshop is for beginners and those who have been frustrated in past attempts to transform seed to seedling. Students will leave class with a selection of seeds raring to grow. Aftercare will be necessary.
