7:00 p.m. Program and Meeting
Hands-on Propagation Workshop
Campbell Community Center
155 High Street
Attendees have the chance to experience the process of propagating rhododendrons from stem cuttings from making the cuttings, to "sticking" the cuttings in rooting medium, to receiving the rooted cuttings back in the spring, and the process of growing them on until they can be planted in the garden.
Terry Henderson, owner of Log Cabin Nursery, will lead the workshop with instructions on how the process works and then will take the cuttings to his greenhouses where they will root through the winter.
In the spring, attendees will receive the rooted cuttings (or the ones that did not root) back with instructions on how to plant them in growing medium and grow them on to become viable plants.
Each participant may bring up to 7 cuttings taken in friends' gardens, each marked with a white plant tag showing the name of the rhododendron as well as the participant's name for good identification. Please bring your own sharp pruners but the 2" containers, rooting hormone, and rooting medium will all be supplied. We will also try to have extra cuttings for those attendees who do not bring their own.
The public is invited at no charge.
