Description

Learn how to propagate native plants by seed.  Join us at SKINC nursery as we delve into the world of propagation by seed. After this Master Class you will be equipped to collect, store and plant seeds just in time for the seed collecting season!

This Master Class will cover:

  • How to collect viable seed
  • How to store seed
  • Why some seeds need to be stored for over a year
  • Seeds treatments to increase germination
  • Growing media
  • Creating environmental conditions that help germination
  • Pricking out and planting out
  • Tips for success
  • Practice your seed propagation skills
  • Question and Answer

In the afternoon of the same day and at the same venue we are running a Master Class on “Native Plant Propagation from Cuttings“. If you book both classes you can attend both classes for $80 ($40 per class). You will need to book each class separately but use the “2 class – Seed & Cutting” ticket option when booking your tickets.

To ensure no plant diseases are introduced to the nursery, all plant stock for propagation will be provided by the nursery.  Please do not bring any plant stock from home to propagate
