Tree Grafting – Saturday April 23rd – 10am – 4:30pm
The history and theory of grafting will be covered briefly. Tools will be introduced and participants will practice grafting techniques, mainly ‘whip and tongue’ and ‘rind’ grafting. Each participant will be able to graft their own tree to take home.
If you wish to bring scion wood from your own tree to propagate make sure it is good quality, 1 year old growth that is free of disease.
