“A garden is half-made when it is well planned. The best gardener is the one who does the most gardening by the winter fire.”

With an exciting new addition: Tubers & Tuberous Roots

This popular series of videos has been a staple in classrooms across the United States and in many foreign countries. Now you can add a new and important propagation technique - Tubers and Tuberous Roots - to the three propagation methods previously covered: seeds, cuttings, and vegetative techniques.

Imagine the convenience as our cameras take your students into locations where they see wholesale nursery operations cranking out millions of plants through commercial propagation techniques. You can't afford to take you classes to all of these types of operations, but you can show them how it all works through the convenience and economy of these videos.

Exciting New Addition to our Propagation Series
Volume Four: Tubers & Tuberous Roots

Watch the two-minute video sample below.


Tubers & Tuberous Roots
focuses on these underground storage structures in great detail. The primary crops used are potatoes, sweet potatoes and dahlias. Aside from the traditional propagation methods using potato tubers, students will also learn how to work with True Seed Potatoes or TSP.

True Seed Potatoes are vital in the development of new potato varieties and are increasingly being produced for developing countries. Sweet potato cuttings are also demonstrated along with a delicious way to use these nutritious roots. Volume Four shows how to propagate the tuberous roots of dahlias and also demonstrates various treatments for extending the vase life of these extraordinary cut flowers.

Science of Propagation: Cuttings
From hardwood cuttings to hardening off, this fantastic new video shows students the tools, processes and methods used by professional propagators to successfully grow plants from cuttings. Many examples of Stem-cuttings, leaf-cuttings and root-cuttings are demonstrated, as well as specific examples of hardwood, semi-hardwood, softwood and herbaceous cuttings. Explore plant anatomy, growing environments, transplanting & growing on, rooting principles, and the monitoring of growth & development of cuttings. See how to streamline horticulture practices to prevent diseases and increase overall production. DVD 35 minutes

Science of Propagation: Vegetative Techniques
A very informative, close-up look at the many practical asexual propagation methods that can be used to reproduce plants. See many descriptive step-by-step examples which demonstrate the different types of vegetative propagation methods such as division, layering, bulbs and underground structures such as rhizomes and tubers. These propagation techniques give quick results and also provide an excellent laboratory for the study of plant science. Careful explanations of plant parts and procedures are given. This program clearly covers all aspects of vegetative propagation, except for cuttings. DVD 28 minutes
