Whether you’ve been planting in your yard for years or you are new to the world of gardening, chances are you’ve wondered how to make the most of your plant inventory (and your budget). Well, the best way to avoid mainstream, retail garden stock and control your own plant growth is through propagation!

Propagation is defined as breeding plants via natural processes using a variety of plant parts such as seeds, cuttings, and others. In our new three-part course designed for beginning gardeners and those new to propagation, we’ll break down all the basic elements needed for you to easily propagate your own plants at home. Learn about plant anatomy, planting techniques, important equipment, journaling, cutting, rooting, division, composting, plant problems and more. No experience necessary!
