Spent the afternoon attending a course on Starting Native Seeds at the Natural History Society of Maryland. We reviewed how seeds break dormancy - water, light and dark, stratification, scarification, double dormancy, chemical inhibitors and some seeds must be planted fresh. We left the class with a wealth of native seeds along with instructions for planting! Thank you to instructor Christa (Chris) Partain, a lecturer of biology and environmental science at Towson University and Maryland Institute College of Art.
