High Country Gardening Class: "Plant Parenthood-Grow Forth and Multiply"
Green thumb or not, you can learn nearly two dozen ways to propagate plants asexually during a class on vegetative propagation of plants being offered May 5. The class, presented by the Department of Biology, runs from 9:30 to 11 a.m. at the biology department greenhouse located at 333 Dale St. off State Farm Road.
Jerry Meyer, greenhouse manager, will also discuss plants that are capable of creating small versions of themselves along their leaf margins, completely circumventing sexual reproduction. Plants used in the hands-on class are largely tropical, but many of the same principles can be applied to propagation of hardy perennials and shrubs as well, such as clump division.
The class is free; however, attendees may pay an optional registration fee to help support greenhouse operations and education efforts. To reserve a space in the class, contact Meyer at email@example.com. For more information about the program, call 262-4025.
