Start your fall native plant gardening with free seeds from Chatham-Kent Public Library! CKPL Grows Fall Seed Library: Native Plant pilot project will launch on Tuesday, September 7. All branches are offering a variety of native plant seeds for residents to grow. As a bonus, Common Milkweed seeds will be available for those interested in planting for the butterflies.
To celebrate the launch of this initiative, the library will be hosting a Zoom presentation on gardening with native plants delivered by Lorraine Johnson. Lorraine is the author of many books on native plant gardening, including “100 Easy-to-Grow Native Plants for Canadian Gardens” (now in its third edition) and her recently published free, downloadable ebook, “A Flower Patch for the Rusty-Patched Bumblebee”, co-authored with conservation biologist Sheila Colla.
The live Zoom presentation will be offered on Wednesday, September 15 at 6:00 pm. Registration and an email address are required.
