You will learn about grafting apple and other fruit trees.
You also get to see a local back yard nursery (yes, you can buy stuff) and get ideas how to propagate a bunch of stuff in a smallish space.
You will be able to buy apple rootstock at cost (around $ 3.00)
If we have time, we will start a bunch of nitrogen fixers and talk about the importance of these plants….
This month meeting is a week only since we will be at the Voices conference on the 3rd Sunday. Hope to see you at voices!
Meeting are the 3rd Sunday of the month starting at 3pm. We will present and practice different propagation techniques throughout the year, including grafting, air layering, starting plants from seed, cuttings and so forth. More details about each meeting are announced closer to the date.
We always like to share refreshments, so, bring what you got. Donations are highly appreciated to cover cost of materials we purchase, such as seeds, potting soil, printing of handouts and so forth.
