Seed Sowing and Transplanting Free Class

February 11 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Find out how and where to choose the right seeds for our shorter growing season in Central Oregon. Learn what varieties of vegetables do well here. The instructor will give demonstrations on how to prepare seed trays, mix the seedling medium, and plant and nurture seeds. There will be information on how to use grow lights and warming mats. You will learn the two stages of transplanting. We will discuss when and how to harden off the young plants so they will thrive outdoors. A long-time successful gardener will teach these “tricks of the trade.”

You will take home the official publication of science-based research, “Growing Vegetables in Central Oregon.” You will learn how to access the Oregon State Extension Service website to get other publications for your gardening projects and concerns. If you need a soil thermometer ($5 each) or row cover ($10 per 6ft x 20ft roll), you will be able to buy those in the classroom. This FREE class is presented by the Central Oregon chapter of OSU Master Gardeners, as part of our Community Education Outreach.
