Learn several different methods of plant propagation for the backyard gardener, using simple tools and techniques.

This workshop will cover several different methods of plant propagation for the backyard gardener, using simple tools and techniques that can be mastered by everyone with hands and common sense. We will explain and demonstrate the basics of both sexual and asexual propagation, with a discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of each approach. Methods covered will include seed stratification, cloning with suckers, layering, and cuttings, and a demonstration and explanation of simple grafting approaches. If there's time we'll also look at a few other techniques, such as stooling and coppicing.
