Pass-Along-Plant Workshop

The Master Gardeners of the Ozarks will be presenting a program called “Pass Along Plants”, on Saturday, October 4, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. in the native plant and herb demonstration garden located behind the Taney County University of Missouri Extension office.  The office is located at 122 Felkins Avenue in Forsyth and is the first house on the right just past the Taney County Judicial center.  Pass along plants travel from one gardener to another.  Each holds a story of where it came from and the loving hands that grew it.

The Master Gardeners will be discussing the basics of dividing plants, propagation, and saving seeds to share with family members, friends and neighbors along with some of the history and traditions.

If you are a new gardener and looking to get started, Master Gardeners will be bringing in plant and many will be available from the Demonstration Garden to share.  We invite you to bring in a few of your favorite plants or seeds to share in a pass along tradition.

Come and join the Master Gardeners as they explore the traditions of “Pass Along Plants”.   “The best part of pass alongs is that you can’t give or receive a piece of a plant without giving or receiving a piece of gardening advice” said Marva Ramsey, Master Gardener of the Ozarks member.
