Description: Want to introduce more native plants to your garden? Frustrated at the difficulty of sourcing a variety? Jan Midgley, professional propagator and author, teaches us how to grow our own. Jan will use pictures of blooming plants, fruits and seeds to instruct attendees on how to collect, clean, store, sow, germinate, grow and transplant Colorado native plants. Jan is all about research, so if there is a plant that you are struggling to germinate seeds for, let her know (even with a reply to this email if you don’t have time to tune in live) and if she can get the seeds she will add it to her trials.The presentation will include a discussion of timing and materials, a downloadable slide list and a resource handout. A recording of the presentation will be shared with registered attendees.
