This 3-hour workshop will cover the basic principles of fruit tree grafting.
Participants will learn how to harvest and store their own scions and how to order and grow their own root stock.
Chenoa will demonstrate three different grafting techniques. Proper knife use and safety will be covered as well.
Hand-on time will be allowed for participants to practice and perform two whip and tongue apple tree grafts on potted seedling rootstock, to take home with them.
Other information pertaining to the growth and life cycle of apple, hawthorn, pear and quince trees will also be discussed. Understanding key factors in the yearly cycle of your growing trees is important when grafting onto them.
Scions, grafting materials and handouts will be provided.
