Grafting is a wonderful way to make more from less in a small urban orchard and begin to explore the joy of variety in fruiting plants. In this class, we will learn and practice methods which may be used for grafting dormant scions (cuttings) onto both rootstock and mature trees. You will gain an understanding of plant propagation and the role of grafting, the basic science of grafting, which fruits 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 at least two grafted fruit trees.
Please note that this class has a $12 supply fee, to be paid in class.
