Finding period-appropriate plants for a historic garden restoration can be problematic. Nurseries, even mail order suppliers, cannot always supply plants grown during the period of significance. During this class, students will learn a variety of methods for how to “make more plants” from seed, cuttings and division. Students will take home a tray of seeds and flat of cuttings.
By the end of the workshop, each student will be able to: To sow seeds from heirloom biennials; take hardwood and softwood cuttings from some of the 1930s original shrubs at the Cross Estate gardens; divide a selection of the original perennials from the Cross Estate gardens; try a variety of other propagation techniques: scaling lily bulbs, scooping hyacinth bulbs and layering.
