We will first go over the science and mechanics of grafting and budding and how to properly plant a grafted tree. Next will be a demonstration and instruction of cleft, bark, bud, saddle and whip & tongue grafting. Participants will then do some hands on grafting of their own. Participants can take home what ever monstrosity they've created. This is a “mechanical” workshop, without rootstock. The material can be propagated, but there is no guarantee if the graft and/or the plant will take. At the end of the workshop I will explain some methods of propagation so your plant has a better chance of survival.
Participants will be working in pairs. This is for your safety so you have a “spotter” in case you are being a little careless with the tools. So, consider bringing a partner that you trust.
All materials and tools will be provided for this workshop.
Cost per participant: $20
Minimum participants: 11
Maximum participants: 15
If there is a substantial waiting list I'll schedule a second one in the afternoon.
