From Seeds to Blooms Using Native Plants

bee pollinatingThursday, 10/19
6:30 – 7:30 p.m.

The seeds of wild plants have a different set of needs than those of garden and vegetable species. In this slide talk, Heather McCargo, founder, and director of the Wild Seed Project, will describe the reproductive life cycle of different types of native plants and explain how we can change our landscape practices to help support wild plant reproduction, along with helping pollinators, birds, and other wildlife. 

Growing native plants from seed is a different way to interact with our local flora and is an inexpensive way to produce a lot of plants. Heather will explain native seed sowing and outdoor propagation techniques. Fall is an excellent time to sow the native seeds!
