Virginia Native Plant Society Jefferson Chapter Meeting: Plant Propagation at the Nature Foundation at Wintergreen
Wednesday, May 13th, 7:30-9:00 pm, Education Building at Ivy Creek Natural Area, 1780 Earlysville Road, Charlottesville.
Jean Bertelsen of The Nature Foundation at Wintergreen will join us in advance of a Virginia Native Plant Society field trip to Wintergreen’s native plant nursery. Jean will discuss the Nature Foundation’s native plant propagation and gardening program. The propagation program works to develop and share a broad knowledge of plant species native to our area, and propagate plants from seeds, plant division, and cuttings. The Plant Propagation Team uses only native plants from approved Wintergreen and neighboring sites as sources. The program promotes the use of native plants in landscaping within the Wintergreen community as well. The plants propagated by the Plant Propagation Team’s volunteers are sold in the spring, summer and fall.
