Times: Meets at 10:00 am in the Visitor Center

Meets in the Visitor Center


Creating new plants by rooting stem cuttings is the best way to propagate many perennial herbs such as rosemary and southernwood that do not always come well from seed.  A single healthy herb plant can magically generate a dozen or more new plants. We will practice this skill using plants in the Village’s Herb Garden collection, and participants will take cuttings home to root.

Garden Thyme programs are held on a select Saturday each month and are FREE for members of Old Sturbridge Village. Led by Village horticultural and agricultural staff, these programs and workshops are held at various sites and deal with a variety of plant-related themes and topics. Participants gather at the Visitor Center and are led to the appropriate setting.
