Pollinator Gardens -
39 Keep Street
Saturday, Feb. 23, 10:30am

Our colorful home gardens are sleeping through the winter right now. But we can dream about the beauty that will bloom when the seasons change! February is the perfect time to start seeds for a pollinator garden.

Join us at the Madison Public Library for a seed starting workshop on February 23. Discover the beautiful addition to your garden that these plants will make. Learn why pollinators (and their gardens) are important to all of us! Learn why it is important to start these seeds now! Learn how easy it is to start your native plant seeds! And how easy it is to mimic winter for them in a protected environment so they can have the best start in spring. Mother nature does it all the time without our help, but we can help her to locate her beautiful blooms right in our own yards and gardens.

You will receive: all the instruction you need (It’s easy!), seeds to start 4 beautiful pollinator-friendly plant species (common, pink and butterfly milkweed, and great blue lobelia), plus starting mix and containers for your seeds. Be willing to put your hands in the dirt!

This program is appropriate for beginning and advanced gardeners alike. Adults and serious young gardeners only, please (ages 12 and up).
