The Basics of Propagating Pelargoniums
and Other Plants - 
with Mary Maran

February 25, 2021 2pm-2:30pm EST

Prepare for spring by attending HSA's first online workshop! HSA member, Mary Maran will discuss and demonstrate the propagation of pelargoniums (scented geraniums) via softwood cuttings. Propagation, in the case of botany, is the act of creating new plants from a variety of sources: seeds, cuttings, bulbs, and other plant parts. Propagation by cuttings is an excellent way to propagate. It allows the grower to increase the number of plants in their collection while ensuring the characteristics of the “new” plant remain true to the parent plant. Finally, some plants are just easier to replicate with cuttings…for example, bay, scented geraniums, lavender among others. Apply what you learn in this workshop to other plants,

In this half hour interactive workshop, Mary will be demonstrating:
·        the tools and materials needed for propagating,
·        the best time to do so, and
·        what you need to know for best results.

Mary is an avid grower of pelargoniums. For years she has donated specimens from her diverse and superb collection to numerous plant sales including the Long Island Unit’s Annual Symposium and the Horticultural Alliance of the Hampton’s Annual Garden Fair.

Join us for this interactive workshop and learn how to prepare your own cuttings for spring planting. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions "live" during the demonstration.
