Plant propagation

This course will increase your enjoyment and success making new plants through:

  • Seeds
  • Cuttings
  • Layering
  • Division
  • Grafting
  • Micropropagation

Plant Propagation goes well beyond the basics to deliver both the art and science of plant propagation.

Participants will examine in-depth the biology, anatomy, history, and use of these propagation techniques.

We send students a complete kit for home propagation, including propagating flats, seed, and live cuttings.

The course takes place entirely online.  There are no face-to-face classes. You can log in at your convenience any time, and there are no set times or days of the week to participate.

Most students spend between 2 and 6 hours per week on the course. In addition to readings, there are short video clips, quizzes, discussion boards, and hands-on activities using the kit of materials we send.

We expect only basic computer competence. There are no technical gadgets in our courses. We are gardeners at heart, not computer whizzes.
