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 workshop on “bench grafting” and “cleft grafting” of apple trees. Other grafting techniques will be discussed. Proper tools and sharpening will not be included. All workshop participants will graft several apple trees to take home!*
* This year plant materials (for this workshop only) will be delivered to participants so they can remotely participate in this hands on workshop. Participants will need to provide thier own tools. For improved success, be sure all blades are sharpened prior to use.
We appologize but at this time we are only able to accomodate participants in Massachusetts as materials will be delivered/picked up in person.
