Potting up – when and how to pot up a cutting so it lives
A lot to take in as it will be so hands on, so we will break for morning tea with home made delights from our SHBG baking friends.
At the end of the day you take home an SHBG bag including propagation mix, propagating pots, printed step by step guide to plant propagation and some cutting material to try at home.
Gloves essential and your own secateurs. Bring a hat, wear a T-shirt, have a jumper and raincoat in your bag and ski tracks for the car – you know the weather in the highlands!
