Vegetative Propagation or Cloning Saturday, September 14, 10:00 a.m.– 1:00 p.m.
Did you know that plants posses “toti-potency”? That means every living cell of a plant has the potential to grow all the other functional parts of a new plant! Propagation of cuttings is, in essence, cloning. In this class we’ll look at a number of different plant species to learn about specific methods and mediums, and the timing critical to getting the best results from cuttings. We’ll also discuss the important life support systems necessary to grow vigorous, healthy plants from cut-tings. And we’ll practice one of the simplest methods of propagation by dividing some perennial plants. You’ll learn which species respond best to this method and when to do it.
