Sowing Native Seeds Over Winter

Community Room B
Saturday, Nov 19, 10:00am to 11:00am

Many native seeds must break their dormancy via a process called cold, moist stratification. If you want to improve the chances of having transplantable seedlings in the spring, join WI Master Naturalist Alex Singer to watch a brief demonstration of making a mini-greenhouse using a transparent plastic jug or other deep plastic container with lid, followed by a hands-on demonstration of the same with Q&A.

Please bring your own container if you’d like to try your hand and take it home planted with native seeds that will be available through Pinney Library's native seed library. Tools and soil will be provided, as will some additional native seeds from the presenter's own native yard.

Registration is required and begins 10/17.
