grafting a tree Many people do not realize that all apple varieties are reproduced by grafting - they are not grown from seed.  For horticultural enthusiasts, one of the most satisfying techniques to master is grafting. Wes Autio will present a hands-on workshop on “bench grafting” and “cleft grafting” of apple trees.  Other grafting techniques will be discussed.  Proper tools and sharpening will be included.  All workshop participants will graft several of apple trees to take home!

This workshop will be partially out of doors, so please dress appropriately for potentially wet, cold and muddy conditions. Led by Dr. Wes Autio.

Bring a bag lunch. Fee $100.
