Mnemonics and memory prompters are a good way for gardeners to remember important facts and dates.
Around Valentine’s Day, February 14? Time to prune your roses.
Do you have a better way of saying, other than “Treat Seeds With Loving Hands,” the five critical elements for growing successful transplants discussed in yesterday’s post? If so, please let us know.
As Ann , the Demonstration Garden’s coordinator, said “There is a lot of interest in gardening but so little real depth of knowledge. I think of some of the things I hear at the garden centers when I am shopping and feel so bad that plants and seeds are going home with very little chance of survival. Young gardeners are so handy on the computer but not always in the dirt. Maybe we can help with that.”
So, put on your creative gardening hat and let us know your suggestion for a way to easily remember the five elements for successfully starting transplants from seed. The best suggestion, as judged by several of the Joe Field gardeners, will receive 5 packets of seeds collected from our Demonstration Garden.
Help us teach the general public how to easily remember how to germinate seeds.
