Public Class - Propagating Clematis via Cuttings and Divisions

One of our most popular classes every year. Limited to 15 attendees, this class explains the botany and technique for successful propagation of clematis via soft and semi-hardwood cuttings. All materials are provided. Because we prepare some of the materials for you in advance to save time, we cannot accommodate walk-ins. We will also demonstrate how to divide clematis, easy to do and nearly instant new plants! You will leave the class with cuttings of several varieties of clematis, and the knowledge to create more from your vines at home.

Registration for this class is now closed. Thank you for your interest.

Inviting Vines Garden Tour

Please join us for our annual Inviting Vines Garden Tour with events to celebrate our twelfth year of fabulous gardens featuring clematis. In addition to the Rogerson Clematis Garden there will be four private gardens for you to visit. 

In addition to the open gardens, special event guests will enjoy either a continental breakfast in the milking parlor of the barn at Luscher Farm while Maurice Horn, owner of Joy Creek Nursery (author, speaker, and founding member of Friends of the Rogerson Clematis Collection), shares his history with Brewster Rogerson and his role in connecting the clematis collection to the brilliant work of Japanese hybridizers.  Or, enjoy the tour and the afternoon tea featuring Judy Alleruzzo and Bill McClenathan of Garden Time TV for an improvisational conversation about their gardening experiences…both good and bad…with clematis in their gardens. If you have time, you may opt for both breakfast with Maurice and tea with Judy and William. There will be lots of clematis to purchase at the Rogerson Clematis Garden and a garden-themed gift basket silent auction benefiting the Garden. Feel free to start your day’s adventure at any of the gardens at 11:00 am if you can’t join us for the special event breakfast.  See you there! Tickets now on sale.
