Library patrons can now learn how to grow vegetables, fruits, herbs and flowers at home, plus get some free seeds to start their garden. The Land O’ Lakes Branch Library, 2818 Collier Parkway, debuted its Seed Library on Jan. 21. Patrons can select seeds from within the library’s collection and find the growing instructions for them on the outside of the packet. More detailed information, provided by University of Florida/Institute for Food and Agricultural Sciences-Pasco County Extension, is available in the binder located at the seed catalogue, as well as on the UF/IFAS website. The library’s website has a list of the seeds that are available.
The donated seeds are courtesy of True Leaf Market, Southern Exposure Seed Exchange, Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Company, Burpee Gardens, BBB Seed Heirloom Vegetable & Wildflower Seeds, and the Friends of the Library. For more information, visit PascoLibraries.org/services/seed-library/.
