How to Propagate Indigenous Plants, workshop by Judy Allen

04/02/2012 10:00 am

Saturday 4th February 2012 at 10.00am to midday at the Victorian Indigenous Nursery Co-op in Yarra Bend Road Fairfield (Melway 44
H2-off Yarra Bend Road).

IFFA’s next activity will be a workshop on how to propagate indigenous plants run by Judy Allen, who produced the video Seeding the Future. Judy has extensive experience in the indigenous nursery industry and has done a significant amount of teaching about this at all levels.

The workshop will be free for IFFA members ($5 donation for non-members), and numbers will be limited to 20, so bookings are required.

Please email bookings to bookings@iffa.org.au with your name and phone number and the number of people attending.

The course will include

  • Seed pre-treatments (boiling water, cold etc)
  • Times to sow
  • How to prick out seedlings
  • Taking and growing cuttings
  • Techniques for growing plants at home.

Judy will bring handouts. The session will be very practical.

Tea and biscuits will be provided.
