Seed Saving & Propagation

Seed Saving & Propagation

Learn about seed saving and propagating plants in your own garden.

From sharing zucchini seeds over the fence with a neighbour to taking a cutting from a friend’s thriving rosemary bush, propagating your own herbs and vegetables is easy, inexpensive and so very satisfying. Learn how to produce new plants from seed, cuttings, layering and division in this hands-on workshop. We’ll explore organic, heirloom and hybrid seeds, different seed sowing methods, timing for different types of cuttings as well as propagation media.
Suitable for those just starting out with propagation, or those with more experience who want to take their propagation skills to the next level. Participants will take home plants they have propagated on the day.

You will learn:

  • Improve your gardening know how
  • Principles of propagation
  • Practical skills to produce new plants from seeds, cuttings, layering and division
  • Timing and tips to take your propagation skills to the next level.
