There are two propagation groups; a Propagation Group, and a Propagation Training Group.
The Propagation Group meet each Monday morning from 9:30am to 12pm. The group prepare and produce a wide range of plants not readily available to the general public.
The Propagation Training Group meets each Thursday from 9am to 12pm. It also runs a training session on the 3rd Thursday of each month (except December) from 12pm to 2pm. The training’s session focus is on teaching how to propagate plants and their subsequent care. It is a mixture of discussion, demonstrations and practicals in an informal friendly atmosphere. BYO lunch. Non-members are welcome. Contact: Inge & Michael Hammer ph 9755 2176.
Plant material is sourced from the FCHS and private gardens. Seed is from private and specialist overseas societies. After propagation, the resulting plants are sold at our four major shows throughout the year, as well as other events outside of the society. Plants raised are also used to populate the Rock, Perennial and Native Gardens, all of which are maintained by the Propagation Group.
