SeedlingsRodale institute has a new event, a sort of Gardening 101 for this time of year, called Winter Warm-Up. While cold weather may keep gardeners house bound, it is the perfect time for planning, purchasing and sowing organic seed inside to get ready for the garden season that will be upon us before too long. Rodale Institute's Seed Starting Expert will participate in #Plantchat on Twitter to answer questions and provide helpful hints and advice for gardens new and old. It's another great topic and discussion in store on #plantchat!
