Next Lecture: February 28th The Ins and Outs of Seed Propagation
With Denver Botanic Garden Curator/​Horticulturist, Mike Bone
Learn how to propagate your own seeds at home and save money on bedding plants. When you grow your own plants you can take full advantage of the wealth of varieties available, rather than being stuck with a small selection that big box stores want to sell. Grow your own super early tomatoes, unusual flowers and even heirloom seeds. It is all possible in a small space at home.

Mike Bone is the Curator of the Steppe Collections for the Denver Botanic Gardens where he is also the propagator. Mike has worked in propagation and production for 20 years with 13 of those at the Denver Botanic Gardens. His main focus is growing and propagating plants from around the world that are suitable for the high dry steppes of the Front Range.
