home & garen: Learn about starting plants from seed at the Master Gardener Talk series at Nicola's Books
Jim Leach | Contributor
At this presentation, you'll learn how to and when to plant seeds and how care for them, resulting in vegetable and flower plants for your garden beds. Join with local garden enthusiasts to gain information and tips on beginning your garden in an economical fashion.
Future talks are scheduled for the second Monday of each month. Planned topics include The "Dirt" on Soils, Fertilizers, etc. (April 9) and Shade Gardens and Spring Ephemerals (May 14).
The talk will be led by Master Gardener Alumni of the Wastenaw County Association. Master Gardeners are enthusiastic gardeners/volunteers trained by the Extension Service in horticultural information and research-based gardening methods. For more information about the local MSU Extension program, see their website.
Plan to join this informative discussion that will aid in making this year's garden starts successful.
Janice and Jim Leach tend a backyard plot in downtown Ann Arbor, where they try to grow as many vegetables and other plants as possible. For the last four years, they've published gardening tips, photos and stories at their 20 Minute Garden website.
