Propagation Workshop at Boscobel
Saner mortals might have thought that the Horticulture team had assembled a group of fanatics in the 90-degree heat to clean the paths of the Boscobel Herb Garden. But the hardy group of PGC members who showed up on August 20th on one of the more blistering dog days knew better. They knew they were getting a chance to propagate some of the rare and interesting plants that had overflowed the borders for their own gardens. Grateful participants took home, among other things, Betony (Stachys officinalis), Japanese Anemone (Anemone hupehensis), False Indigo (Baptisia australis), and best of all the “Maiden’s Blush” rose (Rosa Alba) associated with the Loyalist cause inseparable from Boscobel’s story. We wish them luck nursing their plants through.
