This class will cover breaking seed dormancy, cold moist stratification, rooted cuttings, layering, direct planting, growing from bare root, and MORE! Attendees receive a descriptive list of Midwest native trees, shrubs, grasses, perennials, annuals, and vines that can be easily propagated and should be considered for your garden. BONUS: Each participant will take home a bare root tree, shrub, fern, OR spring ephemeral they pot up using the methods learned in class!
