What you'll learn
This course focuses on the propagation of a range of plants using a series of distinct methods. Reasons for cutting, division and layering will be discussed and demonstrated. Collection and preparation of propagation material will be shown, along with types of rooting media and the correct type and use of tools. Aftercare, including heating and protected cultivation environments, will be discussed.
This was a perfect mix of theory and practice.
