Seed Treatment & Germination Class

Growing native plants often involves getting dormant seeds to germinate. Based on habitat and adaptation, seeds may require a variety of physical or chemical conditions to begin germination. In this class, we will discuss seed biology, seed dormancy, and the physiology of seed germination. There will be plenty of hands-on time to practice and experiment with pre-germination treatments including stratification, scarification, smoke and even fire! This class will be led by the knowledgeable team of Liz Ponzini (Manager, Marin Headlands Nursery) and Robin Binaoro (Associate Manager, Presidio Nursery), Martine Glaros (Seed Collector/Nursery Assistant, Marin Headlands Nursery), and Desmond Murray (Seed Collection Ecologist, Presidio Nursery).
