Learn How to Propagate Native Plants from Seed
Wednesday, February 28 at 5 PM – 7 PM MST
Location: REI DENVER
Wild Ones & Audubon Rockies presents a comprehensive look at propagating native plants from seed.
Native landscaping is so beneficial in many ways, but it is also a very special (and easy!) way of gardening itself! In this talk you will learn how to propagate your native seeds, either in a controlled environment to later transplant out in the field, or sow directly in your soil to see all the new surprises coming up in the growing season. Attend this talk to learn more about the lives of seeds themselves from when plants set seed, to when and how to collect, as well as the different methods to break dormancy whether they are in containers or in the ground. You will experiment with what materials you will need and examine what kind of prep and maintenance is necessary to pull together the garden of your dreams that you helped nurture and create. Remember, it is never too early to think spring!
