Fourth in the series of ten, you'll learn how to grow your own transplants. Buying transplants for your garden can be expensive, and they may not have the varieties you want to grow.
Learn proper seeding, raising, and transplanting techniques with Kate Halstead, owner and grower for Soil Sisters Plants & Produce in Monroe. For more than 20 years, Kate has grown her own transplants for sale to gardeners in the Snoqualmie Valley.
Some plants do better started inside and love to be transplanted, others don't like to be coddled and prefer to go straight into the ground. Learn which are which and how you can get a jump on this season's harvest by growing your own.
Be prepared to get your hands dirty! We'll practice transplanting tiny seedlings into a small pots. Everyone will take home at least one transplant!
