On Saturday, October 22, 2016 at 10 AM at the San Lorenzo Garden Center, 235 River Street, Santa Cruz, the Monterey Bay Chapter of the American Rhododendron Society will feature a cutting workshop on growing rhododendrons from cuttings. In the program you will be able to create plants from cuttings which you can take home, which should be blooming in three to five years. During the program, Mike McCullough will be showing how to create plants from cuttings and will provide cutting material mainly of Maddenii Series and Vireya Series rhododendrons which are rhododendrons that are superb for our area but are unfortunately not provided by nurseries like they should. Many maddenii and vireya hybrids were created in California and are ideal for our climate.
Mike McCullough is a charter member of the De Anza Chapter of the American Rhododendron Society, a longtime member of the Monterey Bay Chapter, and has been growing rhododendrons for over thirty years.
