Seedling Showcase: Ready to Plant

Growing seedlings indoors is a great way to get a headstart on Manitoba’s short summer growing season. Jie Aquino’s passion for gardening continues from the time she went to Saudi Arabia’s hot weather (+48°C) to Canada’s (-48°C) cold weather.

Among the plants they’re growing include okra, squash, peppers, snow peas, ampalaya, lettuce, lemongrass, several varieties of tomatoes, sweet potatoes and more.
Many of the seedlings will be used for their personal backyard garden including an upcoming senior’s community vegetable garden with the Filipino Seniors Group of Winnipeg.
