THE MASTER GARDENERS OF BERGEN COUNTY Presentation: "Starting Seeds.. and more” With Walter Perry
At the next meeting of the Bergen County Master Gardeners, Walter Perry, principal of Perry’s Florist & Gardens in Glen Rock, will give a presentation on “Seeds” - covering on all aspects of seed propagation.
It’s hard to believe but Spring will be here soon. Walter’s presentation will focus on correct techniques, what seeds to start when; quality starting mixes; moisture levels; temperature and light; starting indoors verses direct-sowing outside and much more.
So, whether you grow annuals, vegetables or herbs or would just like to learn some horticulture tips to demystify starting your garden from seeds, come and join us. Learn some tips and tricks in an interactive presentation, and everyone will leave with a plant or seeds. And, as a bonus Walter will give a brief presentation on the problems of Downy Mildew and Impatiens.
The presentation will be held on: Tuesday February 26, 2013 at 7:30pm, at The County Administration Building, One Bergen Plaza, County Place, Hackensack, NJ. in the Learning Center on the 4th floor, Home of the County Extension Office. There is plenty of parking & easy access to the building. Meetings are open to all interested gardeners, free of charge, and refreshments, followed by announcements, start at 7pm.
