If gardening is in your future, it's already time to plant your seeds. Angela O'Callaghan gives some tips.
  • Start seeds indoors
  • Start plants now that require long growing period
  • Only grow what you want to eat
  • Read directions/description on package
  • Use rich planting medium
  • Use peat pot or degradable alternative
  • Don't crowd seeds and refrigerate what you don't use
  • Use bottom heat to sprout
  • Add more light once they've sprouted (flourescent is good)
  • Plant outside once you see three or four sets of true leaves

Angela O'Callahan will be offering a patio gardening class from 9am to noon on Saturday, March 28, at the Cooperative Extension office, 8050 Paradise Road. This will be a three-hour introduction to growing vegetables in pots and in small spaces. She plans to cover selecting plants that have a good chance of survival in this climate, and how to maximize success when dealing with the limitations of city gardening. Call the Master Gardener helpline at (888) 891-9662 for more information.
