Seed and Plant Giveaway in Marshall

At 6 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 5 east of Marshall, Virginia, the Master Gardeners and Virginia Cooperative Extension is offering a free “Flower Seed Saving Demonstration and Plant & Seed Giveaway.”

Master Gardener Peggy Schochet will discuss perennial seed saving, and afterwards, Master Gardeners will share plants and seeds they have harvested.

What is seed saving? According to Wikipedia:

seed saving (sometimes known as brown bagging) is the practice of saving seeds or other reproductive material (e.g. tubers) from vegetables, grain, herbs, and flowers for use from year to year for annuals and nuts, tree fruits, and berries for perennials and trees.
