London Town Plant Propagation

Londontown Propagation Team of Master Gardener volunteers work on Fridays under the direction of Londontown’s Director of Horticulture, Meenal Harankhedkar. The team is focusing their efforts on propagating: Rhododendrons, Azaleas, Tree Peonies, Primulas and some other perennial plants.  For those unfamiliar, propagation means "causing plants to reproduce."  Volunteers start new plants with seeds, cuttings and leaf samples. Their goals are to generate plant stock to enhance and expand the gardens at Londontown and to protect the historic value and genetics of the plant stock for future generations. The project provides Master Gardeners with opportunities to enhance their skills and allows them to assist with public horticultural education programs.
