Tomatoes: Container Varieties

Do you know that tomatoes can be successfully grown on the porch or balcony of your apartment? Discover the best container varieties with farmer and Master Gardener Dennis Parr who knows first-hand which are the most disease resistant as well as the most delicious. You will learn tricks of the trade and direct seed up to six of the recommended varieties (some new to the market) which you will be able to transplant after having nurtured them indoors and counted down the last of those frost-free days. Eventually the time will come when you may indulge in an abundance of tasty tomatoes. Seed, germinating medium, starting containers and labels will be provided. Garden admission is also included. Ages 15+. Registration deadline: March 21. Min. 10. Max. 20.
