Hardwood Bench Grafting - Hands-On - Whidbey
This class presents the basic science and technique of hardwood grafting, also called bench grafting. A one-hour PowerPoint presentation with your questions is followed by a hands-on lab. You will have the opportunity to graft your own apple tree! Rootstock, several types of apple scion wood, practice wood, and grafting supplies will be provided. If you own a sharp grafting knife, bring it. We will have a few grafting knives on site, and a small number of knives will be available for sale ($30) at the class. Children are welcome, but must be accompanied by an adult who is responsible for the child. Grafting knives are extremely sharp and can cause serious injury.
