Description

We are kicking-off the 2017 Backyard Homesteading Workshop Series with our first-ever winter propagation class! Winter in New England is a time when our deciduous trees and shrubs are dormant. But gardeners don't need to stop because of the cold! There are always things that can be done in the garden. Instead of purchasing expensive new plants to add to the home landscape, gardeners can use winter downtime to propagate woody vines, shrubs and trees without a greenhouse. This workshop will give instruction on how to build a winter propagation bed, basic winter ID techniques, harvesting cuttings from our extensive woody plant collection, preparing the cuttings for propagation and successful winter propagation techniques. 
Cost $35 non-members; $25 members.  Space is limited; call 617-333-0924 to register.  A portion of this class will take place outdoors - so dress warmly and bring hand pruners if you have some.
