Mosses and their Cronies in Stony New England Landscapes
Moss gardening has been popular in Asia for thousands of years, but seems to be of little interest to most local gardeners. If you Google “moss” you will find recommendations on the best ways to kill it! No wonder people are often confused or skeptical when I tell them I’m a moss gardener. To the untrained eye, moss certainly lacks the WOW-factor of many other plants found in local gardens, but with a redirected focus, a trip to a miniature forest can be magical. Moss can be used as an element in almost any garden or landscape and is also well suited for containers, both inside and out. This lecture will focus on the practical aspects of moss gardening with how-to’s and don’t do’s. Examples of lichen, ferns, perennials, woodies and other plants that feel comfortable in moss-friendly environments will be presented. Opportunities for gardening on stone and other impervious surfaces will be illustrated. Moss myths will be debunked. On display will be several types of moss and examples of moss container gardens. Handouts will also be available on the construction and maintenance of moss gardens. More

Propagating Native Plants from Cuttings
Participants will receive a guided tour of the Connecticut College Arboretum’s Native Plant Collection and learn techniques for how to collect, stick, and successfully root softwood cuttings—techniques they can apply at home. Participants will be able to take a limited number of cuttings to propagate on their own. The class will meet at Buck Lodge, on the arboretum grounds for an introduction and demonstration. Participants should arrive at the main entrance of the arboretum a few minutes before the class begins so they have time to walk to Buck Lodge. https://www.conncoll.edu/the-arboretum/

Participants who would like to take cuttings should bring a few plastic grocery bags (the kind that can be tied closed), sharp pruning shears, and a marker to label your cuttings. You are welcome to bring a lunch and enjoy socializing and exploring the arboretum on your own after the program.
