Air Pruning | Evolution of the Classic Gardening Pot
March 5 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm MSTFree
People have been using seedling containers for more than 2,000 years. Some believe that planters were used as early as 500 B.C.! From then to now plant containers have evolved as people have developed further understanding of the plant sciences. From wooden boxes to clay pots to tin cans, and to what is currently used (plastic pots), containers have transformed as the science has progressed. With new understanding we are in a new era of pots. These pots termed “fabric pots” bring about stronger more resilient plants than ever before! Join Tohono Chul’s Propagation Supervisor, Jordan Collins and learn all about the science of “air-pruning” and how it affects plant development. This class will examine the history of the seedling pot and discuss the new science of propagation. Tohono Chul volunteer, Pam Olson will also provide instruction on how to make your own fabric pots. This class is free with admission, but space will be limited so please RSVP. Masks will be required while indoors in keeping with Tohono Chul’s current Covid-19 policies.
