March 27, 2016

masterlogoThe Master Gardeners of Walton County continue their monthly garden lecture series, “The Great American Garden” with April’s lecture entitled, “Seed Collecting and Plant Propagation.”

This discussion will focus on expanding your garden using the plant material you already grow. Master Gardeners will demonstrate seed collection (annuals, vegetables) and propagation through plant cuttings, root division and air layering. Spring is good time to try some of these easy propagation methods.
