Garden designer Martha Oliver will present an indoor seeding program March 20 at the Mt. Pleasant Public Library.

Gardeners itching to plant and bring forth spring’s green can get a head start at 6 p.m. March 20, when the Mt. Pleasant Public Library, 120 S. Church St., presents a program on indoor seed starting.

Presenter and local garden designer Martha Oliver will discuss timing and supplies needed, along with lighting and temperature requirements for starting seeds indoors. She will focus on annuals and vegetables, and then on the more challenging perennials and woody plants.

Oliver grows plants from seed at Powdermill Nature Reserve in Rector, where she is the horticulturalist and creator of the annual August pollinator plant sale. She works from The Primrose Path, a Fayette County nursery that specializes in hybrids of native plants.

At 6 p.m. on April 15, the library will host “Beware: Plants that Eat Bugs,” with the owners of Sunny Sprouts greenhouse in West Newton bringing carnivorous plants.

Pre-registration is required for both free garden talks by calling 724-547-3850 or emailing [email protected]

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
