Cold temperatures and snow are no challenge for gardeners planting annual and perennial seeds to get a jump on spring.

The Royal Oak Garden Club is hosting a free workshop at 1pm on Saturday, February 17 in Side A of the building located at 1481 Wordsworth in Ferndale.

“It’s a way to plant some seeds outside in the different weather conditions we have,” said Barb Bolton, president of the Royal Oak Garden Club. “I think it’s magic how seeds sprout and start growing.”

At the upcoming workshop, attendees will learn how to create a mini greenhouse out of one-gallon plastic milk jugs. This method provides an easy way to grow abundant garden plants starting in February. Freezing and thawing seeds helps them germinate.
