Learn several ways to propagate plant material, proper timing of propagation (is there such a thing), and materials that are needed to have successful propagation. Techniques demonstrated include seeding, cuttings, and air layering. Attendees will be propagating from the Master Gardener educational gardens and will receive three to six cuttings to take home to propagate for their garden. Bring sharp scissors or dead-header pruners, a one-gallon ziplock bag with a wet paper towel inside, and gardening gloves.
