Fruit Propagation and Grafting
Wednesday | January 23, 2019 | 3:00 pm — 5:00 pm
East Bay location | CA
This short course will touch on different aspects of fruit propagation with a focus on grafting. We’ll discuss which fruits should be propagated by cuttings and learn how and then will learn and practice methods which may be used for grafting dormant scion (cuttings) onto both rootstock and mature trees. Grafting allows us to make more from less in a small urban orchard and to explore the amazing variety of fruiting plants that thrive in our climate. You will gain an understanding of the basic science of grafting, which fruits which are compatible, which take to grafting more readily and tools needed. We will then get hands on practice and each participant will go home with one or two grafted apple trees. This is part 3 of a day lon ini intensive. To register for this part only continue below.
