Get an early start on your spring and summer gardening by sowing your seeds now!

Pre-registration is required! Email to:

Create a mini-greenhouse, for indoors or out, using milk jugs.  Certified MasterGardener Volunteers at the Bartlett Arboretum Greenhouse will show you how in a workshop this Saturday, January 20, from 10 a.m. until 12 noon, in the Greenhouse.

We’ll have an assortment of milk jugs, growing medium, labeling supplies and a limited quantity of seeds from locally grown native plants.  You are welcome to bring your own milk jugs and/or seeds.

We show you how to construct the mini-greenhouse using the milk jug.  We’ll also go through proper seed sowing methods, as well as what to do once they sprout!  We’ll demonstrate proper watering and humidity control, the proper time to transplant the seedlings to a larger pot and how to do that.

The workshop is free, but advance registration is requested.  Children accompanied by a parent are welcome.
