From Seeds to Blooms

As the winter drags on, thoughts of spring take root. Join Christian Melendez and learn how to start and propagate your own seedlings. By adapting the basic elements that greenhouse growers use, gardeners in this class use creativity in their space to get a head start on the growing season by starting their own seedlings from seed and propagating existing plants...all on a budget. Other benefits to starting your own seedlings include ensuring higher quality and timing your plants so they are ready to go for planting.
