Join Master Gardeners for a hands-on class which will explore the unusual way in which ferns propagate, since they bear no flowers or seed pods. You will probe into this very primitive process of plant sexual reproduction. You will take home pots ready to bring the mystery of spore reproduction into its full glory from several ferns to add to your plant collection.

Instructors Richard Kurth, Karl Rosenboom, and Claudia Teague are Master Gardeners who love teaching hands-on classes in many areas of horticulture and gardening. They especially enjoy teaching spore propagation of ferns.

Please Note: This class will take place at the Fort Worth Botanic Garden.

$20 members/$25 non-members

Online registration for this class is now closed. A very limited number of seats will be available for walk up registration on Saturday.
