Native Plant Propagation
June 10, 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Henning von Schmeling, senior director of operations, Chattahoochee Nature Center
Have you ever wanted to learn to propagate native plants from your garden? Have you wondered how layering works in plant propagation? Is it possible to break the dormancy of a seed to initiate germination? These and other questions will be answered and discussed at length during this engaging workshop held outdoors at the Chattahoochee Nature Center greenhouses. Propagation from root, stem and even leaf cuttings will be demonstrated, and participants will have the opportunity to apply these techniques as part of the class. This elective will teach you the basics of native plant propagation and give you the opportunity to try out the various techniques perfected by native plant experts over the years. Please note that this class is part of a new program and is located outside of the Athens area.
