Apple Tree Grafting

April 7

Saturday | 9am to 12pm | Queensbury Campus

Learn about the amazing apple tree and how you can start your own favorites or improve existing trees. Because known apple varieties do not grow from seed, we will learn how to graft shoots of desired varieties onto suitable rootstocks. Our focus will be on bench grafting to produce new trees and cleft grafting on existing trees, but we will also explain autumn bud grafting and bridge repair grafting. Benefits of various rootstocks and properties of certain apple varieties will also be explained. Participants will go home with their own grafted apple tree, as well as new knowledge about propagating apple trees. 

Instructor: Dr. Timothy Scherbatskoy

Price: $25, Course price includes a $6 materials fee.
