Plant Propagation from Seed, with Brien Darby
This session will be an overview of plant propagation from seed. Topics will include evaluating your seed source; material needs; seeding calendars; light, temperature, and water considerations; transplanting vs. thinning; and hardening-off. This session will also cover early-season considerations that can lead to greater success in seed saving at the end of the season.
Brien Darby is a horticulturist with the Denver Botanic Gardens. Her two main roles with DBG are the management of a 90-plot community garden and one set of the production greenhouses. In the spring, the production greenhouses at DBG produce between 100-150,000 individual annual, vegetable, and perennial plants for usage in research and on the grounds, particularly in the 5-acre Community Supported Agriculture farm that is managed by the Botanic Gardens.
