Create your own cutting garden with Joli Jardin’s flower cultivator, Becca Coleman. In this intimate workshop on Saturday, April 1 from 12:00-2:00PM, Becca will give you tips and pointers for starting your own flowers from seed and teach how you don’t need a lot of space to grow enough flowers to fill vases in your home for the summer!
The workshop costs includes 1 tray, six 6-cell seedling starter trays, quality seed starting soil, and a range of flowers & herb seeds from Johnny Seeds, Floret Farm, and Geoseeds to choose from to plant in your starter trays. We will be offering sunflowers, zinnias, cosmos, sweet peas, marigolds, hyacinth beans, basil, honeywort and more. The workshop will go over the steps from the beginning, to the sanitizing of trays, how to fill your trays with a quality seed mix (or creating your own), planting each seed and going over the different needs of seeds for germination, pests to look out for, how to care for your seedling starts, and what stages to plant each type of seed out into your garden! Becca will help answer any questions you may have about starting seeds and include tips for harder to germinate seeds.
Two dates: Saturday, April 1st 12:00-2:00PM and Sunday, April 9th 2:00-4:00PM (second class tickets here)
You may add-on a child’s workshop ticket here for $18. This will include one, 6-cell seedling starter tray.
