FarWest’s Rhonda will share tips and techniques for successful seed starting at home to give you a head start on the growing season. She will show you products that help you grow strong and healthy plants. She will also introduce the new varieties only available in seed form. Many are suitable for container growing and/or highly ornamental for tucking in around your landscape plants if you don’t have space for a traditional vegetable garden.
