This is your entry ticket to our fall grafting workshop.
It will be held at our location at 2500 Old Hwy 17, Naughton On, from 630-830pm.
We will discuss the technique of "Bud grafting" that can be used to add additional varieties to apple and pear trees, it's can also be attempted on plum and other fruit trees.
There will be a teaching portion and discussion by Ron Lewis, then everyone will be offered ample opportunity to try it out themselves on some of my trees here's on site.
It's suggested you bring a sharp knife with a flat straight blade. Small pockets knives often work well. Otherwise we will provide all the other supplies.
Everyone in attendance will also receive some grafting tape and up to 3 "bud sticks" from any varieties I currently have here on site.
The event will be limited to 15 people to ensure ample time for practice and to ensure social distancing.
PS if you have any varieties not listed below and would like to bring a "bud stick" from your tree to the event that would be greatly appreciated. (A bud stick is a small branch cutting from vigorous 1 year old growth that is showing signs of bud development at the base of a leaf. It's best to cut the leaves off the bud stick but leave the small petiole)
Apple varieties include:
Pear Varieties include:
