Gardening from Seed-Tuesday, March 21st at 7PM

John Powell from the Penn State Master Gardener Program will be at the Library on Tuesday, March 21st at 7pm to talk about Gardening from Seed.

Gardening dilemmas: Buying a packet of 50 seeds or a four-pack of plants for the same price; choosing a special variety of tomato versus taking what the box store offers; or knowing whether the emphasis on your seedlings was on healthy roots or appealing foliage?  We’ll help you address these life quandaries.

In Gardening from Seed, we will cover:  buying quality seeds, preparing them for success, optimizing their growth, and ultimately transplanting them to the garden.  In summer, you can enjoy your garden all the more knowing that you cultured your plants from seed.  You will save money, display unique plant varieties, and enjoy healthier plants.

The presentation is 45 minutes long and there will be time after for questions.

Registration is required.

Please call the Library at 412-563-4552, email the Library at or drop us a message through Facebook.
