Want to get a jump on spring – and attract pollinators to your garden this summer? Sign up for our Pollinator Series talk! Learn to make your own “mini-greenhouse” in a bottle to start seedlings. Leave it outside till spring, when you’ll reap a dozen or more milkweed & other native seedlings to start in your garden. “If you grow it, they will come!” Collect or save your bottles now: clear 1-litre or 2-litre soda bottles or translucent half gallon milk bottles are recommended. SIGN UP BY JANUARY 15, AND WE’LL SEND YOU FREE SEEDS TO SOW. Our thanks to the CT NOFA Ecotype Project for providing native Joe Pye and New York Ironweed seeds sourced right in our ecoregion. Taught by UConn advanced master gardener Alice Ely.
