Rhody Native Propagation Workshop

WHEN: Thursday, September 27, 2012 at 5:30PM - 7:30PM
WHERE: Blithewold Carriage House

The Rhody Native™ initiative works with the local horticulture industry to propagate Rhode Island’s native plant species. Native plants are becoming more popular in gardens and garden design as homeowners look for plants that adapt well to our climate and soil conditions, celebrate our local landscape, and provide food and shelter for native wildlife and pollinators. Learn the basics of native species propagation, by seed, in this hands-on workshop. You will take home a mixed flat of native plant seeds to overwinter and watch germinate in the spring. We will discuss seed collection, ethical issues, and cleaning techniques.

Admission Fee is $7 for members and $10 for non-members. Click here to register.

  • Constructive criticism (Sep 05, '14)
    Our to-do list in September is blissfully short. The gardens are as lush as can be and just need to be coaxed along until frost or until we’re ready to start moving plants around (musical perennials) and preparing for winter. It has been so dry lately that the weeds have slowed down slightly, so we’re […]
