Take your plant propagation skills to the next level with the Advanced Plant Propagation Masterclass. Techniques covered will move on from general seed propagating and stem cuttings to include: Leaf cutting: some plants can be regenerated from both roots and shoots from part of or whole leaves and these techniques will be investigated and practiced. Root cutting: some plants, ones that naturally produce shoots or suckers from the roots, can be propagated by this technique and this method will be carried out on the day Grafting and budding: involves joining two separate plants so they can function as one, creating a strong, healthy plant that has characteristics of both plants. Several methods will be explored in this masterclass. Presenter: Matt Coulter Matt Coulter has worked in the horticultural nursery industry for the past 31 years. Matt is currently the curator of Plant Propagation at the Adelaide, Mount Lofty and Wittunga Botanic Gardens managing the propagation and growing of new plant material for the Gardens.
