Try an easy, inexpensive and fun way to grow lots of milkweed and other native perennials from seed. Planted in mini-greenhouses made from recycled household plastic containers placed outdoors, seeds germinate in the spring and are garden-ready by summer. Winter sowing works for seeds that require a period of cold stratification. Join Oakvillegreen Conservation Association and Greening Sacred Spaces who will help you get started growing your own native plants for pollinators.
