Apple Grafting Workshop
Saturday, 2nd, March£45.00
In the Cart Shed at Winterbourne Medieval Barn, BS36 1SE
Ever wondered why we graft? Do you have an old favourite that you wish to propagate? Or simply want to acquire this skill? Come and do this workshop, run by Ben Raskin, a previous commercial fruit grower, an enthusiastic, effective and very knowledgeable teacher and now Head of Horticulture at the Soil Association.
Find out how to graft and take away three grafts that you make on the day. We will provide some common varieties for grafting. If you have a favourite that you wish to propagate then bring your own wood to graft. If there is a particular variety that you wish to propagate but do not have wood, please let us know and we will attempt to procure some scion wood.
The only equipment you will need will be a very sharp knife, e.g. a Stanley Knife.
Cost £45, booking essential.
