Join JCRA staff in this advanced hands-on workshop propagating woody ornamental plants by stem cuttings.

plant propagation

In this advanced workshop, participants will briefly review tips and tricks for propagation and find out which plants will be most successfully propagated during late spring months. Participants choose which plants they want to propagate from the JC Raulston Arboretum's collection of over 6,000 taxa (few exceptions apply, though). Staff will be on hand to answer questions and help participants stick cuttings to take home. Each participant will take home two trays of their selected cuttings.

This workshop is for more experienced gardeners with propagation experience and participants of past propagation workshops. Beginner gardeners and those that do not have propagation experience should attend one of the Beginner Propagation Workshops (Friday, May 31, 2024 2:30 pm to gain foundational skills in propagation.

Please note: All of the newly propagated plants will go home with participants. No trays will be left at the JCRA.
