Master Gardener Lois Bellamy kicks off the 2010 Clallam County Master Gardener Green Thumb Gardening Tips series at noon Tuesday, Feb. 9, in the Emergency Operations Center in the basement of the Clallam County Courthouse. The free brown-bag series continues on the second and fourth Tuesdays each month.
Bellamy will speak on starting vegetables from seeds indoors and transplanting seedlings, which gains an average four to six weeks on the vegetable production season.
She will discuss indoor planting tools, germination conditions and transplanting methods.
Other series topics will include assessing winter damage, growing tomatoes on the Olympic Peninsula, herb gardening, extended vegetable season, record keeping, weeds and beneficial insects.
