Provided with a ready-to-plant 48-cell tray, the ready for spring gardeners choose from a range of native seeds from classics such as Black-eyed Susan to the colorful Purple Love Grass, or Rose Milkweed.

Two more workshops are scheduled. March 8, 6-8 PM, with the Master Gardeners at 675 Sansom St. And March 22nd, 7 – 8:30 PM, in Ambler, hosted by Weavers Way Coop.
To help promote awareness of the use of native plants, Environmental Metrics Unlimited, EMU, hosted its first Native Plant Seed Starter Workshop at Chestnut Hill Friends Meeting (CHFM) on Saturday Feb. 24, from 1- 3 PM.
Ten participants learned about the importance of native plants, as well as how to grow and select varieties. They were able to choose from over 15 varieties of native seeds and planted a ready-to-germinate tray.
