VIRTUAL ZOOM PROGRAM
There is such joy and excitement watching as seedlings emerge and mature. The biggest excitement, of course, is from either harvesting a food you have grown or seeing a beautiful flower develop. In this presentation, you will learn everything you need to know about starting seeds indoors, including seed types, supplies needed, the planting process and caring for your seedlings. Handouts will include a great list of resources as well as Rutgers Fact Sheets.
This program is eligible for 1.0 Rutgers Master Gardener CEUs
An amazingly mild, sunny day in the low 50's. A large clump of sweet-smelling yellow flowers (probably a Chrysanthemum variety) is still blooming in the perennial gardens and the bees are swarming over this last source of nectar for the season. The Hamamelis vernalis next to the Waterwise Deck is decked out in delicate, strappy yellow flowers and a PJM Rhododendron, also by the Waterwise Deck, is covered in deep red leaves.
Enjoy a visit soon.
