Join JCRA staff in this hands-on workshop and learn how to asexually propagate some of your favorite plants at the Arboretum. Participants go home with a greater knowledge of plant propagation and with many freshly propagated plants. Participants choose which plants they want to propagate from the JCRA's collection of over 6,000 taxa (few exceptions apply, though). Techniques discussed can be done at home. This workshop is open to all knowledge/experience levels.

Have you ever had a friend pass along a plant shoot from one of their favorite plants and then when you tried to root it and produce a new plant you were ultimately unsuccessful? Or, are you a new gardener fascinated by the idea of being able to grow your plant collection inexpensively at home? If this sounds like you, you should join the JC Raulston Arboretum staff for a hands-on workshop on the important gardening skill of asexual propagation.

Participants will work to propagate some of their favorite plants in the Arboretum's collections with softwood cuttings and will also go home with a greater knowledge of plant propagation and techniques needed to successfully propagate at home. This workshop is open to all knowledge/experience levels.

Note: Some of the newly propagated plants will go home with our participants, but some will remain in our greenhouse for a few months and can be picked up at a later date.
