The Adirondack Garden Club invites area gardeners to a Winter Seed Sowing Demonstration via Zoom, Tuesday, February 16, 2021 at 10 a.m. This presentation is open for all those interested in getting a jump on spring gardening by starting seeds outside in February and March.
The presentation will be led by Roxanne Zimmer of Suffolk County’s Cornell Cooperative Extension office. She’ll share techniques for starting seeds outside using recycled milk jugs, juice and water containers and such, to start all the vegetables and flowers gardeners want to grow. According to Zimmer, outdoor winter sowing techniques are easier than using grow lights in the basement, and leads to healthier plants—and may just make that longed-for greenhouse unnecessary.
The Seed Sowing Demonstration is open to the general public, but registration is required. Visit the Adirondack Garden Club’s website at www.adirondackgardenclub.com and complete the registration form. Details on accessing the Zoom presentation will then be emailed to registrants. Please register by Saturday, February 13 to ensure enough time to receive the Zoom sign-in information.
