Re: Steinhardt Conservatory - BBG

Thank you all who commented on my photos of the Steinhardt Conservatory at the BBG.
I'm really happy to hear that you enjoyed it.  And of course thank you for the compliments.
Donna, I am taking a class in Plant Propagation as part of my
Certificate in Horticulture. The class is taught by the head propagator.
His job is to propagate everything that grows in the garden with the
exception of orchids. The BBG propagates everything in house including
some of the orchids, be it through seed, root, divisions or cuttings.
The plants that they sell on occasion either through special sales or in
the gift shop are not sown or grown by BBG, they are actually donated or
purchased plants for sales purposes only.

NYC Brooklyn, Zone 6b
