FREE SESSION
Sangudo Public Library | Drop-in from 2 to 5pm. Perennial plant propagation session at 3:00 pm.

On Facebook at Sangudo Public Library. Everyone welcome!

The end of May is a great time to look at your flower beds to see where you can tuck in a few more plants. Join us in the library to swap some plants. Do you have a few too many vegetable transplants? Did you divide your hostas and have plenty to share? Put them in a pot, add a label, and bring them along to swap. At 3:00pm join us for a 30-minute session with County Horticulturist Lorraine Taylor to learn about Herbaceous Perennial Propagation- There are so many ways to make several plants from one. See a demonstration of different ways to multiply your perennials by division, root and stem cuttings, layering, and more.
