An understanding of basic Botany is invaluable to gardeners because it provides the "why" behind many of the horticultural techniques used-- such as how to take stem and root cuttings, what happens and why when you make heading cuts when pruning, and all about plant breeding and seeds, to name a few.
Perhaps the lingo seems strange or unfamiliar, and this Twitter chat is a way to unravel some of the finer points with Proven Winners Stacey Hirvala and the voice of Corona Tools USA, Chris Sabbarese.
This week on #Plantchat ask questions or share favorite stories about basic Botany with the team at Proven Winners!
