Watching a seed sprout and grow into a plant is truly one of life’s miracles! Starting your own seeds enables you to experiment with varieties you can’t find at the local nursery. Taking cuttings and dividing perennials is a great way to increase the number of plants in your garden, plus you can share the extras with gardening friends. This talk will teach you how to start seeds indoors, as well as direct-sow seeds in your garden. You will also learn how to take and care for cuttings, and how to and divide various perennials.

She is a regular contributor to Pennsylvania Gardener magazine and the publications editor for the Pittsburgh Botanic Garden.
