Hopkinton Garden Club presents “Cutting Propagation for the Home Gardener”

By contributor,

The Hopkinton Garden Club is excited to kick off their 100th Anniversary year with a presentation by Adam Wheeler, Horticulture and Production Manager at Broken Arrow Nursery, on cutting propagation for the home gardener.

Adam will overview important cultural considerations and the varied techniques necessary to grow your own plants from cuttings. In addition, he'll highlight the scientific fundamentals and tricks of the trade that are useful for putting this time-tested craft to work. The program will be concluded with an overview and plan for constructing a home propagation system of your own.

Adam Wheeler has been working at Broken Arrow Nursery since 2004 after completing his bachelor’s degree in Urban Forestry and Landscape Horticulture at the University of Vermont. He manages plant propagation, container and field production and the acquisition and development of new plants. He is a past recipient of the Young Nursery Professional Award from the New England Nursery Association. Adam loves to share his passion for plants through photography and educational outreach. As a result, he lectures widely on a variety of subjects and is also an adjunct lecturer at Naugatuck Valley Community College and the Berkshire Botanical Garden. In his spare time, he enjoys cultivating his eclectic collection of rare and unusual plants, rock climbing and competitive giant pumpkin growing.

This program will be held via Zoom and is open to the public. Non-members who wish to attend, please respond to and state your interest in attending our January 16 online event. Instructions will follow.
