Propagating Garden and Houseplants (workshop)

October 5, 2019 | 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm

pushing small plant stem cuttings into soil

Learn about various types of propagation, including leaf and stem cuttings, root division, layering, and seed. Get hands-on experience with a few methods of propagation that are easy to do at home, and briefly discuss a few that require special equipment and more advanced skills, such as grafting and tissue culture. Collect a variety of interesting cuttings (and seeds) around the Gardens and from supplied stock plants, treat with rooting hormone, “stick” them, and bring home an assortment of potted-up cuttings to grow on. Come prepared to handle soil, and please bring a set of pruners.
