Plant Propagation

MGNV - Best Management Practices logoIf you have had a garden for more than 5 years, chances are your plants need thinning, dividing, or splitting. Propagation techniques will not only give you more plants to sell, plant or give away, these practices are great for rejuvenating your plants and your soil at the same time. Kirsten Conrad, the Agricultural Natural Resource Extension Agent for Arlington County and City of Alexandria, will discuss some easy plant propagation techniques like division, layering, and cuttings for use with both houseplants and common outdoor garden plantings.

This free online class was offered by Extension Master Gardeners.
