Want to grow apples, sweet cherries, pears, paw paws, or any other fruiting tree requiring two polllinators--but you only have room for ONE tree? Then you need to learn how to GRAFT in this HANDS-ON Class!
Grafting trees is the process of combining two trees together to create a hybrid species. When you graft trees, you are simply taking a piece of one tree and inserting it into another and then wrapping it up. Before you set off to graft trees on your property, however, it is important to learn how to do it properly.
You will learn:
• Why to graft
• Examples of grafts
• Demonstration of chip graft
• Demonstration of “T” bud graft
You will practice grafting using branches and buds. If you have a potted tree and a bud you would like to graft, bring it to class. The instructor and assistants will be on hand to provide individualized assistance.
We will supply parafilm and grafting rubbers, and have grafting knives for sale. Please bring your own grafting knife, pocket knife or utility knife if you have one. We will also have some band aids on hand for any mishaps!
