In this Seed Saving class from the UC Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners of Stanislaus County, you'll learn:
- What types of seeds to save and the difference between heirlooms and hybrid seeds.
- How flowers are pollinated and how seeds develop.
- How far apart to plant varieties of vegetables to ensure seed purity.
- How to save seeds and how long saved seeds last.
During class, you'll have a hands-on experience of separating flower and vegetable seeds from "chaff,*" and labeling to take home to your garden. Please join us at one of our classes at a local Stanislaus County library near you.
We are also excited to announce that classes are starting this month at the Waterford Library branch!
