How to Collect Seeds

Vernal witch-hazel seed

September 21, 10 AM to 2 PM at the Welcome Center

One of the things we do at Secrest arboretum is collect seeds from plants in our collection to grow and offer for sale or to give away on Arbor Day. This workshop is designed to help you learn how to collect, clean, and store the seeds of woody plants. We will spend time collecting seeds and then cleaning them. Time will also be spent discussing dormancy characteristics of these seeds. Registration can be found here:
