Introduction to Fruit Tree Grafting

Details

A practical and hands-on introduction to fruit tree grafting.

The aim of the course is to

give you confidence in your ability to graft trees onto root-stock
help you understand the process and techniques
give you skills needed for successful tree grafting in your garden.

This is a hands-on and practical workshop and there will be plenty of time to ask questions. The workshop will include a tour of our young food forest.

The workshop will be led by Stephen Watts and Liz Zorab.

You will have two grafted apple trees to take home with you at the end of the workshop (more trees will be available at an additional small cost).

All tools and equipment required for this workshop will be supplied.

Level: Beginner
