Seed LibrarySEED FEVER!
RESCHEDULED: Tuesday, February 19, 7:00 – 8:30pm
As gardeners know, Seed Fever is an infectious condition, which strikes hard at this time of year, often brought on by exposure to new seed catalogs with their lavish colors and exuberant descriptions. Your head spins and your fingers twitch. The only real relief from this fever comes in the spring when once again those fingers get back in contact with seeds and soil. Please join us for the first of a series of support sessions organized by the Charlotte Seed Library. Facilitated by Seed Library Coordinator Linda Hamilton and Master Gardener Karen Tuininga, we’ll discuss setting goals for your vegetable garden, choosing varieties, starting seeds indoors, preparing to save seeds, and where to get help when you need it. In March, the support session will focus on garden layout and planting: what, where and how.
