ONLINE VIA ZOOM
Growing native plants in our home gardens is a great way to support local wildlife including birds and pollinators. Native species are also climate adapted so often don’t require additional inputs like water and fertilizer. This class will discuss techniques for propagating native plants from seed including seed collection, seed cleaning, seed storage, and seed treatments such as scarification and stratification. Vegetative propagation including division and cuttings will also be discussed.
