Plant society to hold talk on propagation

The Rhode Island Wild Plant Society will hold a general meeting and program on Saturday, Jan. 10, at the North Kingstown Free Library.

The business meeting will begin at 1 p.m. and speaker Leslie Duthie will talk about propagation techniques for native plants beginning at 1:30 p.m.

Learn the ins and outs of propagating native plants from ferns to wildflowers to native trees and shrubs. The lecture will cover seed and spore collection, storage, time and temperature for germination, and hardwood and softwood cuttings. Native plants are generally easy to grow and some basic techniques are sufficient for propagating many different kinds of plants. Bring questions on those plants that are difficult to grow.

The library is located at 100 Boone St. in North Kingstown.

The meeting and program are free and open to the public.
