Fruit Tree Grafting

Athens, OH

Waterloo Aquatic Education Center, 9660 State Route 356, New Marshfield, OH

Sunday, February 17, 2013 2 - 5pm

 
Join grafting expert and apple enthusiast Derek Mills (he has 600+ cultivars) and learn how to graft your own apple trees! Since every apple tree produces a new kind of fruit, people’s favorite varieties are the result of splicing branches from the original tree onto a vigorous, disease-resistant rootstock.

Your $10 class and materials fee covers the cost of 1 root stock and scion, with the option to purchase more for a small fee. Participants are asked to bring their own utility knife for grafting.

Beverages and cookies will be provided at this workshop.
