Propagation Techniques with Nick Ulrich- March 12th
Grow your garden with propagation
Join us March 12 at 7 p.m. at the Cedar Park Recreation Center to learn how to multiply what you already have from Nick Ulrich, propagation supervisor at Barton Springs Nursery in Westlake where he’s worked for 16 years. The majority of the nursery’s plants are grown on site where they become acclimated to our soil, water, and climate. They also propagate and cultivate unusual plants so that they too can take root in our Central Texas soil.
Nick will cover :
Propagating from seed, by cutting and by division
Why different plants are propagated in different ways
The importance of knowing the plants you’re working with and how they self-propagate
Propagation in the “real” environment versus in a controlled environment and the necessary growing mediums, irrigation, and light conditions
The tools and supplies you may want to use in your own propagation efforts
In 2015, Greenhouse Product News named Nick one of their “Forty under 40,” noteworthy industry professionals under the age of 40 who are helping to determine the future of the horticulture industry. The publication cited his involvement for more than a dozen years with a campus beautification program at an Austin elementary school, including planting more than 100 trees and building a butterfly garden. He was also credited with spearheading many new product introductions at Barton Springs Nursery, from “quirky African medicinals” to native Texas plants.
Nick has worked in the green industry in three different countries: the United States, Guatemala and Brazil. He has a wide range of experience in the gardening and landscaping field including irrigation, landscape design and installation, hardscape, education, and propagation.
