Starting a garden from seeds is very rewarding. There are not many things that bring you back to childhood when you harvest plants and vegetables from your garden and say "Yeah, I grew it from seed!" Such a tiny seed can be so much fun!

In this class, a professional Horticulturist from Garden Outside The Box will show you how to be successful in growing vegetables, herbs, and flowers from seed.

I will cover:

  • How to read a seed packet
  • Seed classification
  • Pre-sprouting vs direct
  • Do's and don'ts of seeding
  • Growing containers
  • Soil mixes
  • Seed starting tools: heat mats, grow lights
  • Thinning
  • Organic fertilizers: ratios
  • Transplanting: raised beds and containers or in-ground

Please Note
If you are interested, you can add on a Growing Supply Kit that comes with all the supplies you need except seeds.
  • Mini greenhouse (heavy-duty, BPA-free, re-usable)

This was a great team building activity. Nicole even was able to make us a custom kit with everything we need for our "team morale" budget at work! She thoroughly walked us through all the steps and provided good tips and tricks for our developing green thumbs. I would suggest for a group class of any size!
