I learn to propagate and maintain plants through books, nursery workers, videos, blogs, and other online resources during the month of February, practicing 10-15 hours per week with various types of plants, both perennial and annual and experimenting with all levels of difficulty. I create a learning journal that include all the plants I currently have planted on my property and ones I plan to attain soon--grafting, forcing bulbs, cuttings, rooting, soil mix, scarification, pruning, disease and pest control, water-light-nutrient-mineral needs, et ceterra. I volunteer at Spring Ledge Farm a few hours a week to learn different nursery techniques, learn theory, and practice what is appropriate for February in zone 5a. I create a calendar for propagation and maintenance throughout the year in a zone 5a.
ask Greg and Tasha about volunteering at SLF (#hours, random, rigid...)
