Seed Saving
with Kat Lavers

Learn how to save seeds is a wise move for any gardener. You will save a fortune on seed packets and seeding of course, but over time you will also develop stronger plants that are perfectly adapted to your garden’s microclimate. You will also have plenty to share with friends and family. We will cover all the basics of plant selection, pollination, harvesting, drying, cleaning and storing seeds for common vegetable varieties.

Tuesday 19 February 6.30pm - 8.30pm
No prior knowledge or experience required

Growing your own veggies
with Kat Lavers
