Start Seeds at Merryspring Saturday March 4

Camden, Rockport, Maine - Gardener Rose Swan will lead a seed starting and garden design workshop at Merryspring Nature Center on Saturday, March 4 from 10 am – 12 pm.

For new gardeners, knowing where to start can be the most daunting task. Swan leads this hands-on workshop designed for beginning gardeners. Participants will learn about designing mixed flower and vegetable gardens, as well as propagating various garden plants from seed, indoors at home.  Focus will be on perennial and annual plants to use in mixed flower and vegetable gardens. Each guest will be able to start seeds and bring them home. A selection of flower and vegetable seeds will be provided, but those interested may bring special varieties from home if they choose.

Swan has gardened for over 13 years in many different growing zones and specializes in mixed flower and vegetable gardens.  She has worked at a number of Midcoast area non-profit organizations and currently lives in Union.

This program is part of the Weekend Workshop series at Merryspring. The cost is $20, with a discounted rate of $15 for members of Merryspring.

Limited space and materials are available. Please pre-register by contacting Merryspring at 236-2239 or info@merryspring.org.
