1007FP Fall is a Great Time for Propagating

Saturday, October 7

10 am-1 pm

Instructor Michael Hannen propagates all of the plants he sells from his home-based nursery in Rochester’s Upper Monroe neighborhood, and has well over 20 years of trial and error experience perfecting the best methods and times to propagate many different types of plants. Fall is actually prime time – many plants are easier to dig and divide or take root cuttings from now, and/or have mature seeds, and many gardeners have more time in the fall to devote to propagating. In this demonstration class at his nursery, Michael will discuss which plants to divide now, and show you how to divide them and how to handle them for fall or spring planting, in the ground or in pots. Bring something to take notes on and feel free to bring a portable chair. Directions will be emailed before the class.
