Bull City Gardener Series-Live- Problem Solving and Propagation: Air Layering
Tuesday May 17th, 10-11 am or Sunday May 22nd, 2-3 pm
Briggs Ave. Community Garden

Learn to identify and treat common vegetable gardens problems, and even how you can prevent some before they get out of hand. Bring samples and stories from your own garden and learn how to handle whatever’s bugging you. For the second half, learn how to propagate plants by air layering, one of the most exotic and ancient forms of propagation. It uses the same principles as pinning a low branch to the ground, only with air layering, you bring the ground to the branch. It’s a good technique to use with trees and shrubs whose branches don’t bend down.
