Garden Masterclasses

Saturday 29 June – PROPOGATION FOR BOUNTIFUL GARDENS – Lesley Cunningham

You don’t always need to be buying more plants! In this masterclass you will be taught the careful step-by-step techniques of propagation for a range of Garden favourites. An introduction to the chemical and physical principles of propagation will be followed by teaching sessions covering root, stem and leaf cuttings, division and vegetative propagation. Held at the beginning of the propagating season, you will practice these techniques in the botanic garden, ready to return home to many, many more plants you have created yourself.
