Wayne Mezitt, Chairman, Weston Nurseries. The world of plant propagation is cloaked in mystery. What really is a cultivar, a hybrid, or a straight species plant? How are nursery crops typically grown and new plants introduced to the market? Join us to hear an expert nurseryman’s point of view, how plants are selected and bred for new characteristics, and what it really takes to successfully propagate both native and non-native trees, shrubs, and plants for the consumer market. Wayne Mezitt is Chairman of Weston Nurseries, and has over 50 years experience in his family’s business.
