Winter Sow Method with Lady Fern Farm

February 7 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Lady Fern Farm will be at the Jacob Edwards Library to provide an opportunity to learn about winter seed sowing and the benefits of adding native plants to our yards. Participants will plant two milk jugs with native seeds to take home. Participants are asked to bring a clean milk jug.

The Winter Sow Method involves sowing seeds in modified milk jugs or other containers and setting them outside for the winter. As temperatures fluctuate, the seeds go through a natural stratification process of several freeze/thaw cycles which encourages germination. The milk jug acts as a mini-greenhouse, protects the seeds/seedlings and facilitates a robust root system.
