Memphis Horticultural Society Mtg
Do you ever find yourself saying you wish you had just a few more of your favorite hydrangeas? Maybe you want to share some at the next plant give away with your garden club, or perhaps you want to give your favorite plant to a gardening friend? There are many ways that home gardeners can easily propagate hydrangeas and other garden shrubs. From seeds, to cuttings, to layering, to division, with a bit of knowledge and patience we can make more of our favorite plants.
Bryce Lane discovered his passion for plants, and telling others about
them, working at a local garden center through high school and college. After earning his BS and MS in Horticulture, he went to the Department of Horticultural Science at NC State University as an Instructor and Under-graduate Coordinator. He spent 34 years teaching and advising over 20,000 students. Bryce retired in 2014, but still teaches part-time in the department. For 11 seasons he hosted and produced a three-time, Emmy winning, UNC TV public television show called “In the Garden With Bryce Lane”.
He now spends his time giving horticulture talks, doing leadership and communication training, teaching part-time at NC State, and at the JC Raulston Arboretum. He has worked closely for years with North Carolina Extension and the NC Nursery and Landscape Association. An avid gardener, Bryce has gardened on the same one quarter
acre plot for 36 years. He and his wife of 42 years also spend plenty of time with their 6 grandchildren!
Please join us to learn about the many propagation techniques available to you to duplicate and multiply your
plant collection. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. for socializing and refreshments. Bryce will begin his presentation at 7
