Propagating Native Trees from Seed with Tree Pittsburgh

October 14th, 2017 10:00am - 12:00pm

Join Tree Pittsburgh's Megan Palomo in this unique autumnal workshop! Participants will get hands-on experience in woody plant propagation from seed. Learn seed collection and storing procedures, and sowing and germination techniques. We will work with native trees and shrubs with an emphasis on outdoor seed sowing in pots or growing beds. Growing natives from seed is easier than you think, and it’s a great way to help protect the genetic diversity of Pennsylvania’s native plants.

 Megan is Tree Pittsburgh's Heritage Tree Nursery Manager, where she grows native plants for reforestation projects. She has worked in the nursery industry for most of her life and enjoys educating others about the lost art of growing trees from seed.
