CAMDEN - Merryspring will host a hands-on class on cultivating plants indoors for the spring garden on Saturday, April 20 at 9 a.m. Participants must register by Tuesday, April 16.
Maine Master Gardener John Fromer teaches this “next step” workshop for gardeners who are ready to learn proper cultivation methods. In this class, guests will learn when and how to transplant seedlings, how to root bulbs, corms, and tubers, and propagate cuttings into full plants. Each participant will practice their skills on a dahlia and lily to divide and take home.
Fromer has been a Maine Master Gardener since 1998 and runs Appleton Ridge Flower and Vegetable Farm with his wife Kathy, also a Maine Master Gardener. Together they grow flowers, vegetables, and herbs in a sustainable and authentic fashion.
This program is the second of three weekend gardening workshops hosted at Merryspring this season, and part of the Weekend Workshop series. The cost of this class is $30 and includes all materials, with a discounted rate of $25 for Merryspring members. All participants must sign up and pay by Tuesday, April 16.
