Growing your own vegetable transplants from seed can give you a head start on the growing season and access to varieties not commonly found as transplants at garden centers.

Join Matt Jones (Extension Horticulture Agent) and the Master Gardener℠ volunteers of Chatham County for a hands-on workshop for home and community gardeners on planting and establishing vegetables from seed. Participants will learn about seed biology, vegetable variety selection, growing media and containers, growing conditions, and diagnosing common problems. Following the lecture, participants will practice sowing, transplanting, and caring for vegetable seedlings.

Two identical sessions of this workshop are available to accommodate your schedule:

  • Wednesday, Feb. 5, 2020, 6:00 – 8:30 p.m. REGISTER
  • Thursday, Feb. 6, 2020, 9:30 a.m.–12:00 p.m. REGISTER

The workshop costs $10 per person. Registration and fee payment is required by Feb.3, 2020. Select a date and click on the REGISTER link above. Additional classes may be offered if there is sufficient demand. If spaces are full, add your name to the wait list on the registration page.

Both workshops will be held at the Chatham County Agriculture and Conference Center (1192 US 64 W Business in Pittsboro).

This workshop is part of the Extension Gardener series of workshops that are open to everyone. It is also part of the Extension Master Gardener Volunteer Core Training program. More information about becoming a Master Gardener Volunteer in Chatham County.
