A three-unit course that teaches one of the most fascinating aspects of horticulture producing new plants from seeds and cuttings will be offered this spring by Orange Coast College's Ornamental Horticulture Department.
Spring semester classes begin on Monday, Feb. 2.
Titled "Plant Propagation," and listed as Ornamental Horticulture 183 in OCC's schedule, the course meets Wednesday evenings, from 5-10:25 p.m.
Students will learn how to produce hydrangeas, geraniums, scaevolas, New Guinea impatiens, calla lilies and a myriad of flowers and vegetables for spring planting and summer enjoyment. Class members will experience hands-on activities during every class session. They'll also have a chance to work in OCC's greenhouses.
The course is fully transferable to the University of California and California State University systems.
