In this workshop, explore the botanical world of plant propagation with staff members Allison Kelley, Natural Heritage Trail Manager, and Trenton Miller, Collections Manager. The adventure begins with classroom time pertaining to the many wonderful ways to multiply our beloved natives. We will cover the steps involved in propagation by seeds, cuttings, and divisions. The class will then participate in some hands-on experience practicing some of these techniques. The afternoon will be finished with a hike through the gardens, discussing which methods of propagation are appropriate for each of the wonderful natives we encounter.
Pre-requisite: Basic Botany.
Location: Hayden Conference Center at the South Carolina Botanical Garden.
