Winter Sowing of Native Plants

January 7 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am EST

January 7, 9:30pm – 11:00am

Winter is a great time to sow native seeds. Many native seeds need to be exposed to prolonged cold and moist conditions to break their dormancy and germinate. Join us as we introduce you to native plants and guide you through this hands-on, 6-step process.  You’ll leave with a pot of native perennial seeds that will grow all year and be ready to plant in your garden next fall.

Donna Miller, UNH Extension Advanced Master Gardener
Stacey Scaccia, UNH Extension Master Gardener

$10 for NH Audubon members and UNH Ext Master Gardeners
$15 for non-members


Registration Required by January 5, 2023

Snow cancellation notifications will be determined and sent on January 6th.

Presentation will take place indoors. Outdoor portion will be weather dependent – dress for a short walk on grassy uneven terrain.

For reasonable accommodation requests, please contact Massabesic Center Director, Kimmie Whiteman, at kwhiteman@nhaudubon.org.

This program is brought to you through an on-going partnership between New Hampshire Audubon and University of New Hampshire Extension’s Master Gardener Program. The Demonstration Gardens at NH Audubon’s Massabesic Center provide a place for sharing best practices in eco-friendly home and community gardening, which enhance human health and well-being and wildlife habitat.
