Native Plants On The Cheap

What can you do when you are having a difficult time finding native plants to purchase? Grow them yourself! 

This program on plant propagation will be presented by chapter members Martha Richeson, Nancy Saint, and Wendy Reistle. They will cover methods and tips for starting and growing native plants from seeds and cuttings. 

Martha will share her secrets to starting native plants from seed and Nancy will focus on vegetative propagation—taking softwood cuttings and semi hardwood cuttings and getting them to root and the division of plants. Wendy will also show us how she utilizes a greenhouse with a misting bench to propagate cuttings. 

Make sure to bring all your plant propagation questions! The Native Plant Society of Texas is a Texan by Nature Conservation Partner.
