Tree Mob™! Prepping for Propagation

POSTPONED to October 14. Collecting, storing, and triggering seeds to germinate is a tricky business. It requires patience, skill, and knowledge. It also requires an understanding of the various means of seed dispersal and the environments and processes that allow seeds to sprout in their native habitat. Mimicking nature is the key to success. In this tree mob, Propagator Jack Alexander and Manager of Plant Production Tiffany Enzenbacher will show some of the fruits, nuts, and seeds that are in line to become a new generation of Arboretum plants and speak about the treatments that various seeds undergo to trick them into sprouting. Meet inside the Dana Greenhouses on Wednesday, October 7 at 1:00pm.
