You'll learn about the different types of grafting, how to choose and take scion wood, choosing a receptor site, how to make the graft and seal it properly. We'll spend time practicing inside doing bench grafts and then head outside to top work some older trees. In addition, we'll provide two rootstocks per person and have a variety of scion wood available to create your own grafted trees to take home.
