SAN ANTONIO — The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and Bexar County Master Gardeners will be presenting a Backyard Gardening series program on plant propagation from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Oct. 29 at the agency office in Suite 208 of the Conroy Square business complex, 3355 Cherry Ridge Drive, San Antonio.
“The ‘How to Make More Plants’ program is part of our agency’s overall Backyard Basics initiative,” said David Rodriguez, AgriLife Extension horticulturist and county Master Gardener program administrator. “Our trained Master Gardener plant propagation specialists will present this program, where attendees will learn about the simple, basic techniques behind how to make more plants from the plants they already have.”
Rodriguez said the program would easily pay for itself in money saved by propagating more plants from existing ones as opposed to buying new plants of the same varieties.
“The ability to propagate new plants is also great for those people who have heirloom or ‘legacy’ plants and want to keep that plant line alive and share it with friends and family,” he said.
Cost is $20 with registration online at http://agriliferegister.tamu.edu/BackyardBasics or by calling 979-845-2604.
