Event Details

Grafting and budding propagation are common techniques used by nurserymen and fruit producers to duplicate desirable trees.  Grafting and budding can also be practiced by the home gardener and can be a source of pleasure, satisfaction, and usefulness to the hobbyist.

 

Each workshop participant will receive two apple rootstocks and fruit scion wood to practice budding on and take home to grow.  Participants may also bring their own apple scion wood from a tree of interest.  Apple wood will be used in this course, however, the techniques described will work for most fruits and ornamental plants.

 

The grafting methods covered in this course are the ones most often used by fruit growers to increase plant populations, change the cultivar of a tree, or preserve a cultivar or mutation not found in nurseries. Since most fruit trees do not come true from seed, vegetative or asexual propagation must be used. Cuttings from the majority of fruit trees are usually difficult to root; therefore, graftage is the most efficient means of reproducing them.
