GRAFTING WORKSHOP AND SCION EXCHANGE - Saturday, February 13th, 2021. 11-1pm. FREE.
Learn how to create fruit trees that grow multiple varieties. Introduce new fruit options to a crowded yard. Grafting is the process of attaching one variety of plant to a different variety of plant (such as a Fuji apple onto a Gala apple tree). The workshop includes a grafting demonstration that will show you how to graft and what plant combinations will be successful. Supplies for grafting will be provided. If you have fruit trees, please bring labeled "scions" (twigs) from your plants to exchange with other participants. The more plant varieties people bring-- the better! Participants are encouraged to visit HERE for tips on how to collect scions to bring to the exchange.
Held at SEEDS 706 Gilbert Street, Durham, NC. 27701.
We will have this event in the outdoor classroom, under the roof and heat lamps, with masks to observe safe covid protocols. Please dress warmly.
What to bring?
Scions (last year's growth twigs) of fruit trees, grapes, kiwi, berries, etc. The more scions the participants bring, the more variety of grafts we can make. For information on how to collect and store your scions, go to this page.
