Greenhouse Operations

April Moore visits the greenhouse at Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage to learn about their propagation efforts. In the fall, most of the propagation is from cuttings. Then in January they begin propagating from seed. The new plants are used both in the landscape beds onsite, and also for the annual plant sales.

Gardener Extras

  1. Stachytarpheta jamaicensis (blue porterweed) is the host plant of the Tropical buckeye and is a nectar source for many butterfly species.
  2. Salvia elegans (pineapple sage) is a hummingbird favorite, blooming in late summer to early fall when food sources may be less abundant.
  3. Pelargonium graveolens (rose geranium) has intensely fragrant leaves that can be used in drinks, desserts, or even in a bath.
