Program: “Want more plants? No problem!”
Speaker: Roseann Ferguson
In this two-hour hands-on workshop, you will learn how to propagate your own plants from cuttings, leaves, seeds, and other plant parts. You will take home four new plants that you start from cuttings and the confidence to make your own new plants.
Roseann has loved gardening all her life, but it wasn’t until retirement that she had time to really become involved. A trip to Costa Rica motivated her interest in butterflies, and her subsequent volunteer activity with Texas Discovery Gardens has given her the opportunity to develop her gardening skills. Roseann’s other interests include gardening, travel, and photography.
Recognized for her contributions, she’s received a Greenhouse Specialist certiNication in 2012. Awards for her volunteer work include, Volunteer at Texas Discovery Gardens Greenhouse since 2007, Lifetime member Texas Discovery Gardens 2012, and President’s Call to Service 2013.
