Garden seeds available through the month of May Whiting Library, located on Main Street in Chester offers garden seeds to encourage green thumbs. Large urban areas and small communities across the country have begun programs to share seeds and to encourage backyard gardening. This is the second season for Whiting Library’s program. At the Library beginning May 1st choose from free, easy-to-grow vegetable, or flower seeds. You “check-out” seeds, grow, harvest and “return” some seeds all in the same season. Whiting Library hopes to grow the selections and quantity of seed available year by year.
Save seeds from the plants which do well in your own garden, and your seed collection will begin to adapt to local conditions and gardening habits. By seed saving you keep a partnership with your plants year after year. Information on growing open pollinated and heritage varieties is available at the Library. Patrons may also borrow hand tools, rake, shovel, hoe to get you started.
