The fall equinox brings with it a time of reflection as we balance an equal time of day and night and slowly transition to our months of darkness. A perfect time to honor the harvest, we will spend our workshop together collecting plant material from the garden and creating beautiful brooms to decorate our homes with. Learn about the folklore behind this broom-making tradition, harvest from our own beautiful gardens, and spend an afternoon outside celebrating at the exact time of the equinox.

Whether you’re a new houseplant hobbyist or a long-term addict, this workshop is for you! Would you like to multiply your favorite houseplants to share with friends (or hoard for yourself)? Join our Trial Garden Manager and houseplant expert, Daedre McGrath, and learn many of the best methods for propagating all types of houseplants, including cacti, succulents, foliage plants, and orchids. We will discuss and demonstrate harvesting and sowing seeds, collecting leaf and stem cuttings, using rooting hormones, ideal growing/rooting conditions, common mistakes and pitfalls, and insider tips and tricks. Every attendee will make and take a full propagation tray of unrooted cuttings (complete with soil and humidity dome) and leave with the know-how to propagate them at home.
