Come and have a go at bud grafting - the method used for propagating fruit trees in summer and one of the main techniques used in commercial fruit tree production.

In this workshop you'll learn about:
- the principles behind fruit tree grafting;
- how to select the appropriate rootstock and take cuttings from the tree you want to reproduce;
- the tools needed for grafting and techniques to use them safely;
- and of course, how to create a successful grafted tree!

You'll end the workshop having grafted a tree of your choice (apple, pear, cherry or plum) which we'll then look after for you til winter when it will be ready for you to dig up and re-plant.

Workshop value: £25 per person.

Feel free to get in touch on to discuss options if you're unwaged, on low income, or for any other reason unable to pay the full £25
