Learn how to sow and care for young tomato seedlings! Participants choose from over 125 varieties of heirloom tomatoes from Love Apple Farm's specialty seed bank. We sow them in seed flats and soil (supplied), while receiving direction and instruction on proper soil to use, heirloom variety selection for your individual growing conditions, germination requirements, care after seedlings emerge, proper transplanting techniques, and more. Students take home a sown flat of up to 48 different varieties of tomatoes with the potential for a total of 150 live plants (that's a value of $600). Plenty for your garden and as gifts for your friends, too! Tomato seeds sown in these classes will be ready for your spring planting. Classes limited to those 12 years and older. Read a nice review of our tomato class from local gardener, Joe Hewitt.
We also have a Growing Pepper Transplants from Seed class.

"Just wanted to tell you again how much I enjoyed your Tomato Seedling Class. This was the first time I've had any success with seeds and, while raising those little guys was certainly time consuming, it was very rewarding. I think I only ended up losing one seedling and that was because I accidentaly dropped a grow light on it …ooops. Needless to say, I had a LOT of little plants at my house. In fact, after setting aside about twenty plants for myself and giving away a bunch to friends and family, I still had over 100 plants. So, I donated the excess plants to my grandson's pre-school for their fund-raiser." -- Jan K.
"I took your seed class in February and have had great success with my seedlings. I'm still farming them out to neighbors and family in Sonoma, Los Gatos, and Pleasanton -- always spreading your words and good advice for their success." -- Judy D.
"I had fantastic luck with the seeds we started in your seminar -- practically every one came up and and I shared dozens of seedlings with my friends." -- Teri M.
