Seed Raising Q&A with Justin Russell

Via Zoom Online Conference Meeting

Please Register in Advance at https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZMkduqgqz0jHNfQFjVSbaVMymrzh9a699aU

Justin will share practical tips based on his extensive knowledge and personal experience. Here are a few of our questions:

  • What are the basics we need to raise seeds for our own home gardens?
  • What set-up, equipment, pots, potting or seed-raising mix would you recommend?
  • Where should we grow seeds? Under cover, full sun, inside, direct in the garden?
  • Do we need a green house, or nursery area, or other structure?
  • What’s the best way to water seeds and seedlings?
  • When should we pot-on or transplant seedlings into our gardens? Do they need any special protection or care?
  • What are the basic gardening tools that are really helpful to have for a home gardener?
  • Are there a few simple things we need to have on hand for organic pest management?
  • What seeds and productive plants should we be growing in our area in the next 3 months?

You’ll also have the opportunity to ask your own questions during the session.

Justin Russell is a gardening writer, photographer and smallholder farmer who divides his time between two main occupations: the production of words and pictures for a range of national gardening publications; and the production of organic food for his family, friends and neighbours.  He lives and works on Half Moon Farm, a 3.5-acre, permaculture-based smallholding at Hampton that he shares with his wife, Kylie, and their three kids.

Don’t miss this great opportunity!
