Are you a gardener on a budget? Do you like growing things "from scratch"? Come to this talk to learn about easy and effective propagation best practices for California native plants, both from cuttings as well as seeds. The talk will include show-and-tell demos.

The program concludes with the popular Seed & Cutting Exchange. Browse the diverse offerings, ranging from easy-to-grow to hard-to-find, and go home with seeds and cuttings of new native plants – for free! We will provide coin envelopes for seeds, but bring containers to carry cuttings home. Bring native plant material from your own garden to share. Label it to make it easy to browse; some gardeners attach helpful hints about growing; others display photos of plants in bloom. Keep cuttings cool and moist in a bucket of water. You will have a chance to show and tell what you brought. Don’t have native material to share? No problem; there is usually enough for all.
