Botanic Talk: Starting Native Plants from Seeds in Milk Jugs

January 27, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

The First Botanic Talk of the Year: Starting Native Plants from Seeds in Milk Jugs on Saturday, January 27, 2018. General admission is $7, discounts available for RBG Members!

Starting Native Plants from Seeds in Milk Jugs. January may be the middle of winter, but it is the time for you to think spring when starting seeds of native plants. There is a little twist though! You will be starting seeds in old milk jugs outside right now.

Native plant seeds need to experience winter before the seeds will germinate. Larry Scheunemann will show you this simple way to grow lots of native plants with minimal work. You will be amazed at how successful this technique is and that nature does the work outside. Larry had nearly 100% germination of 30 different plants last year. You will save lots of money and have fun at the same time.
