Join us for “Plant Propagation 101 with Fleet Farming” on Wednesday, August 03, 2022 at 1 PM.

If you’re an avid gardener, you may have encountered the term “plant propagation” and understand that this is a technique of creating new plants from existing plants. But if you are scratching your head with curiosity about this technical term, this program is the right place to learn more.

Join Fleet Farming Program Director and horticulturist Caroline Chomanics for Plant Propagation 101, a class intended for adult growers to learn the basics of propagating plants by cutting, dividing, grafting, and other propagation means.

Chomanics will answer questions and explain ways you can apply this technique for a flourishing bed of vegetables and flowers.

Program Notes: Attendees should bring a notebook and pen for note-taking.

This program is presented by Caroline Chomanics and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
