Native Plant Propagation Workshop

January 7 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


A hands-on workshop for anyone interested in learning how to grow native plants. Participants will get to start some native plants to take home and continue growing.

During this workshop, we will discuss which propagation techniques work best for about 30 different native species. We’ll practice together starting hardwood cuttings, and demonstrate some other techniques such as layering and division. All the techniques we’ll cover are available for home growers without the need for any fancy equipment.

Space will be limited to 10 people so please register below. If you are interested in attending but are unavailable on Jan 7th or the workshop is full, please email Rob Underhill at biologist@mayneconservancy.ca. We will keep a waitlist and we may offer a second workshop if there is enough interest.

An email with detailed instructions for the event will be sent in early January to those who have registered.

The workshop will be led by Biologist Rob Underhill, who has 15 years of experience growing native plants.

Hi Rob. We chatted at the nursery sale. I’m not sure if we can be on island for this event which is why I didn’t register. If you end up having a space and we are there I would love to come and learn. Talk soon. D

    Thanks Deanne, the workshop is now full with a waitlist but I’m always happy to chat propagation methods anytime!

Plus would like to plant appropriate bare root trees

    Thanks Jim. We have more arbutus available and we offer free on-site consultations. Our nursery is container-based so we don’t have any bare root stock.
