Starting Seeds Indoors

Get your gardens off to a good start this spring by starting vegetable, flower and herb seeds indoors. This workshop will help you decide which plants will benefit most from a head start. You will learn the tools and supplies needed, the best sowing and nurturing techniques, and when and how to transition your seedlings into the garden. Participants will sow two flats to take home. Fee includes materials.

Christie Higginbottom has worked as a costumed interpreter at Old Sturbridge Village since 1981. From 1984 to 2004 she coordinated the historic horticulture program researching, planning and planting the recreated kitchen and flower gardens at the museum's historic households. She also supervised the Village's Herb Garden collection, a garden exhibiting over 300 varieties of historic herbs. From 2004 to 2006 she researched and developed a series of self-guided walking trails interpreting people and the environment in the early 1800s. She researched and designed the 2007-2009 exhibit "Taking Root: Gardening in Pots in the early 1800s." Now retired from full-time work at OSV, she continues to work in costume part-time and to present garden programs for the Village. Christie writes and consults on historic gardens and their interpretation, antique plants, and herb use; and she lectures at museums and historic sites, garden clubs, historical societies, and libraries. She teaches home gardening classes at the Adult Education program at Bay Path Regional Vocational High School, the Worcester Regional Environmental Council and other venues.
