2013 Homegrown Lifestyle participants connected with experts in soil and water management at Iowa State University via a live-stream webinar.
Linn County Master Gardener, Zora Ronan, taught us about starting seeds and growing our own healthy transplants at home.
Zora shared lots of tips including checking if the seeds are viable by starting them in a damp paper towel, creating newspaper pots, and reusing materials you may already have to plant seeds.
To learn more about starting garden transplants, check out this ISU Extension publication. Have you started your own transplants before? Which are your favorites to do yourself and which do you buy? Comment on this post.
