Workshop: Growing Wildflowers from Seed • Johnson County

Wednesday, Mar 19th, 2014 @ 1pm
Overland Park Arboretum • 8909 W. 179th. St. • Overland Park, KS • Map

Ken O’Dell will show you how he gathers, cleans and stores some of his wildflower seeds. Ken will provide seeds he gathered for you to use in this class. You will learn what kind of soil to use, how much to water the pots, and how much light the seedlings need during and after germination. You will plant different wildflower seeds with a label for each pot. You may then take the flat of pots home and watch your wildflowers grow! Each of you will get 15 to 18 pots. Ken O’Dell grows all of the native plants for the Friends of the Arboretum spring plant sale each year. He is a long-time volunteer at the Overland Park Arboretum and serves on the Board of the Kansas Native Plant Society. Class is limited to 12 people, so register early. We will take the first 12 that respond via email to Ken O'Dell and say they want the class. This is a free class to members of the Kansas Native Plant Society only. Contact Ken O’Dell to register.
