Learn the fundamentals of vegetative propagation and how to propagate woody plants through stem cuttings during the dormant season (November through February). We'll focus on low-tech methods you can apply at home, emphasizing plants native to the southeastern United States. The workshop will take place in the classroom and the NCBG nursery.


This class can serve as a great accompaniment to our Native Plant Propagation workshop, but you don't need to have taken Native Plant Propagation to participate - there are no prerequisites.
