Wild by Nature: Sowing Seeds for Spring Wild Flowers with Genevieve Arnold @ Theodore Payne Foundation
Oct 23 @ 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm

In Southern California, fall and winter are prime time for sowing wild flower seeds in the garden! Our world-renowned spring annuals not only provide a spectacular array of colors and forms, but create essential pollinator habitat. Wild flowers perform well in many garden spaces, from meadows and mixed beds to borders and containers. You’ll gather tips and tricks on soil preparation, sowing techniques, design concepts, watering, and cultivation, and enjoy an illustrated overview of some of the instructor’s most beloved species. There will also be notes on sowing native California grass seed.

Genevieve Arnold is TPF’s Seed Program Manager and has worked with California native plants and seeds for many years. Her focus is on the conservation and preservation of our local and regional wild spaces, and on facilitating resilient and integrated garden spaces that support healthy ecosystems and create connectivity, joy and serenity. She enjoys the beauty of native plants in all their phases, including the amazing stages of fruit and seed development.
