NEW APRIL 12!
On April 10, 2021 the Second TCC Air Layer Workshop was held at Oakdale Cemetery. (Photos above) Each TCC member was given an Air Layer handout and then shown the initial basis air layering techniques along with the “Stealth” technique where the air layers were camouflaged. This “Stealth” method was used to air layer in the Cemetery. There were five new TCC members for the second air layering workshop and a total of 8 present.
Four teams of two then proceeded to air layer bushes/plants within designated portion of the cemetery. Seven bushes/plants were air layered to generate seventeen (17) separate air layers. One of the air layers from each cultivar will be prorogated in the Fall, potted and then given to Oakdale Cemetery and replanted on-site next year at this time.
A thanks goes out for all the TCC members that showed up to the two air layering workshops held this year at the Oakdale Cemetery. Our goal is to continue air layering each year and propagate plants the following year at Oakdale Cemetery.
