CNP Propagating Native Plants -
Cuttings & Divisions

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

(The Native Plant Propagation – Seeds course is NOT a prerequisite for this class)

In addition to growing native plants from seeds, many plants are grown from stem and root cuttings, particularly woody shrubs like Azaleas.  Learn how you can use basic methods to grow your own cuttings.  Similarly, many native perennials can be divided in the spring to create new plants and this workshop will cover both techniques.  This hands-on workshop covers the whys and how tos for native plant cuttings and divisions and participants will take home their classroom work to nurture until ready for planting.

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.
