Free Public Workshops
Plant Propagation from Cuttings
Saturday, May 27, 2023 10am to noon
Demonstration Garden on the NID grounds - 1036 West Main Street, Grass Valley
Please join the Master Gardener of Nevada County for a free outdoor workshop[ on growing new plants from cuttings with softwood propagation techniques.
There are many types of shrubs and trees that can be started by cuttings, and winter into early spring is a good time to propagate softwood cuttings. At this hands-on workshop, the process will be demonstrated, and participants will be able to cut and start cuttings for their own gardens.
- Learn what types of plants are suitable for propagation.
- Explore the parts of the plant important to consider when taking a cutting.
- Learn how to prepare cuttings for rooting and importance of rooting hormone.
- Find out how to plant rooted stems and start some of your own!
Bring sharp pruning shears if you have them.
