In this one-day workshop, Heritage Seed Library horticulturalist Marcin Salnikow will share his passion for organic plant propagation – showing you how to grow new plants, or create more of your favourites, with very little outlay.
What you will learn
- What is propagation?
- Different organic methods and techniques.
- Successful seedling aftercare.
Growing your own plants from seeds or creating new plants from cuttings, division, grafting or layering is hugely satisfying – and cost effective. Propagation expert Marcin will talk your through the main methods and techniques, how to collect material for propagation, the best environment for raising young plants, and aftercare. By the end of the workshop, you’ll be able to take these techniques into your own growing space so you can create bountiful homegrown, organic plants.
