Growing Seedlings Indoors
February 12, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pmFree
Part of our Vegetable Gardening webinar series
Some vegetables should always be planted outside in the ground, directly from seed (like carrots & radishes). But in our climate, other vegetables – like tomatoes, onions and Brussels sprouts – should be planted in pots or trays indoors, before the weather outside has warmed up. With a good in-home set up and some careful timing, you can grow healthy seedlings that will be ready to transplant out into your garden! Growing your own seedlings is also a great way to get some beautiful green plants into your home in late winter – and it can be extremely cost-effective!
Join MOFGA’s Crop Specialist Caleb Goossen for help getting set up to grow healthy seedlings indoors. Caleb will show various indoor set-ups (from low cost to higher cost), discuss varieties to grow from seed and when to plant them, and address some of the most common problems that arise when growing seedlings indoors. This talk is aimed at people who want to try growing their own seedlings for the first time. There will be lots of time for questions & conversation!
Caleb started as MOFGA’s crop specialist in 2018 after receiving his PhD in agronomy from the University of Vermont. Prior to that he farmed for nine years in Vermont, worked at Vermont’s oldest nursery, and had brief horticultural adventures in Belize and New Zealand.
