Northern Gardening: Starting seeds indoors & the latest on LEDs

This month's Northern Gardening, hosted by Diane Booth and Joan Farnam, is all about starting seeds indoors and outdoors, giving you tips on how to make your seed starting easier and better.

Guests are Karina Roth, who starts all the seeds for the Great Expectations School annual plant sale, and David Abazs of Round River Farm in Finland. They talk about starting seeds based upon the calendar or by using agrophenology, which looks at what's happening in nature to determine when to plant. 

We also talk with Esther Gesick, assistant scientist from the U of M Horticulture Dept., about a study to see how effective LED lights are to grow plants indoors.
