Want to get a jump start on your herbs and flowers, but don’t have the space or equipment for indoor germination? Winter sowing is a natural, efficient, and inexpensive way to get seeds started outdoors in mini-greenhouses. Please bring several plastic milk jugs or take-out containers with clear lids. We will provide soil and an assortment of interesting herb and perennial varieties. Later in the season, you can use the same technique to get your veggies started.
