Hi, I'm Nan Sterman

I'm a horticulturist, garden expert, and educator. I've dedicated my life to teaching people just like you how to be more successful gardeners. 

I've taught over a thousand people to start plants from seed, and I can teach you, too! 

Tell Me More

It all starts here! Learn my tips and techniques for planting and sprouting seeds.

We'll cover caring for your young seedlings: watering, fertilizing, and more! 

Finally, it's time to plant! I'll be with you the whole way, from freshly planted seedling to harvest. 

What makes this course different?

Other courses give you a login and leave you on your own. In this course, we work together to develop your seed starting skills. I take you from seed to harvest, and am there for you the entire way. 

I offer twice-monthly live check-in and coaching sessions from March through July. We gather virtually to talk about your challenges and share successes, and I answer everyone's questions. Between sessions, I'm always available in our Seed Starting Community. No matter what, I'm always just a click away.
