Propagating Woody Plants from Seed

Bryce Lane, Alumni Distinguished Undergraduate Professor Emeritus and Lecturer Emeritus, Department of Horticultural Science, NC State University

  • Saturday, October 20, 2018 – 9:00 am12:00 pm

One of Bryce Lane's favorite gardening activities is plant propagation. He loves to divide plants, take cuttings, and he even dabbles in layerage, but propagating woody plants from seed is often overlooked. Come attend a class totally devoted to understanding how trees, shrubs, vines, and ground covers reproduce from seed and how we, as gardeners, can take advantage of that science to propagate new and interesting plants. We will talk all about what woody plant seeds need to germinate, how we can overcome dormancy and take advantage of the diversity that comes with propagating plants from seed.
