Growing Friends Propagation Plant Workshop

Join Greg Lamont, expert Horticulturist and Growing Friends Volunteer, for the chance to learn how to propagate plant species from the living collection in the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney.

 
The afternoon will begin with a tour of the Garden to visit species that will feature in the propagation workshop, where, under Greg’s expert guidance, guests will get hands-on experience learning the skills and techniques required for propagating a range of unusual, rare and hard-to-find plants. He will also provide you with a good understanding of potting mixes.
 
The afternoon will conclude with a delicious afternoon tea on the Foundation & Friends Terrace, with the opportunity to purchase plants from the Growing Friends Nursery after opening hours. Foundation & Friends members receive 20% off plant sales. 
 
Greg has 30 years’ experience in all technical aspects of large scale cut flower production of more than 50 lines of cut flowers. This combined with an earlier research career in the horticulture of native plants gives Greg an extensive knowledge and exceptional skills in this area, which he now gives to the Growing Friends with his dedicated work at the Nursery over the last 5 and a half years.
