Harvesting seeds is a cost-efficient and exciting way to increase the number of plants in your garden. Learn the best techniques for collecting and storing seeds produced by our native trees, shrubs, and perennials. Following a brief lecture, participants will head out to the gardens for some hands-on seed collecting. Take home a diverse array of samples from Mt. Cuba’s gardens.
This program takes place in person at Mt. Cuba Center Tuesday, October 10th, 2023 (Rain Date: Tuesday, October 17th).
