Learn how to propagate plants from your own garden

Contributed by Historic Columbia

Historic Columbia’s Garden Workshop Historic Columbia’s Garden Workshop Join Historic Columbia for a late summer Garden Workshop Saturday, September 8 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Seibels House & Garden.

Attendees will learn how about the propagation process, including referencing materials, gathering cuttings, rooting hormones, timing, media selection, and more.

“ While generally regarded as a mysterious process enjoyed only by skilled professionals, propagation of woody plants can be both a simple and cost-effective way to expand your landscape,” said Evan Clements, Historic Columbia’s director of grounds.

Historic Columbia’s garden staff, Keith Mearns and Evan Clements, will cover all aspects of basic plant propagation for home gardeners.

The goal of this workshop is to clearly explain and simplify the process of propagating plants and give workshop attendees the skills to grow their own garden with existing materials.

Attendees will perform all steps of the process and leave with a selection of cuttings to take home.

Guests are encouraged to bring their own gloves and pruners. All gardening levels are welcome.

Tickets are $20 for Historic Columbia members and $25 for nonmembers. Space is limited, and advance registration is required.

To learn more and register, visit Historic Columbia.org, call 803- 252-1770 ext. 23, or email reservations@ historiccolumbia.org.
