Master gardeners to address Garden Club of Fleming Island

FLEMING ISLAND – The Garden Club of Fleming Island will host a presentation by two master gardeners at the Fleming Island Library on Jan. 13.

The meeting at 1895 Town Center Blvd. will begin at 10 a.m.

The gardeners who will offer everyone a hands-on opportunity to plant seeds, transplant seedlings and take home two spring flowering plants and two vegetable plants. The program includes information on how to select seeds, varieties that do best planted from seeds in North Florida, equipment needed to start seedlings and planting times to ensure a continuous supply of flowers and vegetables throughout the spring growing season. Growing from seed is a great way to save money rather than buying transplants from a nursery and planting can be staggered to have constantly blooming or spreading out the harvesting of the vegetables throughout the season. No more have everything ready to eat all at the same time.

The meeting is free and open to the public and no reservations are required. For additional information, call (540) 809-9481.
