WILD SEED PROJECT- Grass root seed propagation of native plants
Growing native plants from seed is a different way to interact with our native flora and an inexpensive way to produce a lot of plants. The seeds of wild plants have a very different set of needs than those of garden and vegetable species. Timing is crucial and fall and winter are ideal times to sow the seeds of many species. In this webinar, Heather will describe the reproductive life cycle of many different types of native plants and explain how we can change our landscape practices to help support wild plant reproduction and survival. Then she will describe simple outdoor seed sowing methods that anyone can do to grow their own seedlings.  Be part of a grassroots movement to sow native seeds and increase the amount of native plants in the landscape with an abundance of genetically diverse seedlings.
