Learn About Home Propagation 100 Hours Certificate Course

Home Propagation Online Course

Achieve expert plant propagation in your very own garden with the Home Propagation Course from ADL

This subject aims to develop a basic understanding of the principles of plant propagation,

Home Propagation course online. techniques and equipment and a general knowledge of the methods of propagation of the more commonly cultivated plants.

You can do a great deal to propagate and produce new plants from even the smallest home garden. If space is limited, you may be limited in the quantity of plants you can produce; but if you choose fast growing cultivars and only grow them into small containers (e.g. up to 4cm diameter) you may still produce large numbers in even as little as a small courtyard.

There is nothing wrong with starting small. Many of the largest nurseries started out as small garden operations. Doing this course, then learning through trial and error, can be an excellent way to turn yourself into a very competent plant propagator.

There are viable commercial nurseries operating out of backyards with as little as 400 square metres of space devoted to plants. Some of these backyard businesses generate enough income to support a family, but good management is particularly critical for businesses where space is at a premium.
