Why and How to Sow & Grow Native Plants
The seeds of wild plants have a different set of needs than those of typically cultivated garden and vegetable species. Heather will describe the reproductive life cycle of different types of native plants and explain how we can change our landscape practices to help support wild plant reproduction, pollinators and other wildlife. Heather McCargo, Executive Director at the Wild Seed Project, will demystify native seed sowing and explain simple outdoor propagation techniques that anyone can do so that a wide range of individuals can help increase native plant populations. Growing native plants from seed is a different way to interact with our native flora and is an inexpensive way to produce a lot of plants.
