Starting Clematis From Seed: Learn the New Easy Method
Saturday, March 28, 2015, 10am – 12pm, Connie Hansen Garden, 1931 NW 33rd, LC
For decades clematarians have struggled starting clematis from seed. Germination could take anywhere from 10 days to three years, and much mayhem could befall the seeds between sewing and germination. Recent experiments by hobbyists and professionals all over the world have yielded a new simple, easy method for starting clematis seeds. A few variables are necessary to accommodate such a far flung and wide ranging genus, but reducing the wait from three years to three months for the most stubborn species is a Godsend!
Join Rogerson Clematis Collector Linda Beutler as she demonstrates the tips and tricks of this new seed starting method, and leave with easily transportable baggies of seeds to start your own clematis collection!
Linda will also bring a selection of clematis appropriate to the coastal climate for sale, benefiting the Friends of the Rogerson Clematis Collection.
