CNP Propagating Native Plants from Seeds 

This course is an elective course and provides 4 hours toward the completion of the Certificate in Native Plants program.

Encourage native pollinators, birds, and other wildlife as you save water and other resources by using native plants in your landscape. You can buy them at local garden centers or nurseries, or better yet, propagate and grow them at home. Learn the secrets of native species propagation through seeds in this hands-on workshop. You will take home a flat of seeds for nurturing at home indoors under lights or outdoors.  

Instructor:  MIchael Martin, PhD.  Dr. Martin earned his Bachelor of Science in Horticulture and a Masters of Agricultural Education from Clemson University and his Doctorate of Horticulture from the University of Georgia. Dr. Martin previously owned Natural Natives, Inc. a nursery specializing in Southeastern native plants. He currently works as a horticultural lighting specialist for JW North America.
