Yesterday, the RBGE practical horticulture course covered propagation by seed. Didn’t seem to warrant a whole day, and we were away by 3:30. Saw demonstrations of how to sow seed in trays, cleaned seed from a lucky dip (bad news is that I go viburnum, but did get some Iris from another student), planted out some peas in the student beds. Best thing learned: how to make a seed envelope. Neither of these seed envelopes is the one I learned.
Which reminds me: Went to the NVA/RBGE spirit show on Friday night and learned to fold a chrysanthemum. Highly recommended — it’s on until the start of March.
Last bit of paper folding: a newspaper planter for seeds that grow tall, like beans.
