Learn the Art and Science of Grafting fruit trees Thursday 18th February

Have you ever wanted to try the skill of grafting? This specialist propagation technique takes a little patience and practice but can be mastered by beginners with a little guidance. We are offering this half day course on Thursday 18th February 2021: 1.00pm-4.00pm. 40 Euros per person including all materials and light refreshments.

Graft2 (2)

You will learn a little about the science behind the technique and then have a go at grafting your own fruit tree. We will provide you with two dwarfing rootstocks and a selection of heritage apple varieties to graft (you will make two grafted trees to take home) but if you have your own tree that you would like to propagate then please bring some along, use the contact form below to contact us to find out how to harvest grafting material from your tree.

All tools and materials will be provided. Part of the workshop will take place outside so please wear warm work clothing. This technique does need some manual dexterity and patience! You will take home your grafted maiden trees with full instructions on how to care for them in the first year to maximise success. (Typical success rates for grafted trees is around 75% but if your graft doesn’t work first time you can use the rootstock again to have another go).

Places are limited so Please use the contact form to request booking information or  if you have any questions about the workshop or would like information on how to harvest grafting material from your existing tree:

  1. Thinking of you two and the nursery. It’s way to cold here but am dreaming of Spring. I doubled my cutting garden and so will need a number of plants. Will you be adding to your list for 2021. I hope so. Be well. Happy New Year. Phil
