Home Propagation 101 | In-person class
June 5, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Propagation is the practice of growing your own plants from seeds or cuttings. Propagating at home is an excellent way to make more plants from what you already have in your own backyard!
In this class, the Garden’s Greenhouse
Propagator, Rachel Holland, will show you everything you need to know about
home propagation. You will have the opportunity to practice propagating annual
and perennial plants from the Garden (and then take your newly propagated
plants home with you!). With demonstrations and hands-on instruction, you will
leave this class with the foundational knowledge you need to start propagating
your plants in no time.
Capacity for this class is limited, so reserve your spot today!
Additional Information: This class will take place in person at the Huntsville Botanical Garden, and all class attendees are expected to adhere to the Garden’s health and safety guidelines. Class capacity will be limited, and face masks are strongly encouraged when it is not possible to maintain a distance of at least six feet from others. Attendees will enter the Guest Center and continue through the doors into the Garden to meet on the patio outside. This class takes place primarily outdoors, so please dress appropriately for the weather and be prepared for long periods of standing and walking on a variety of surfaces. We recommend wearing clothes that can get messy and bringing your own pruners and gardening gloves, if desired. In case of inclement weather, this class will be rescheduled.
