Grafting Fruit Trees: a Hands-on Workshop
Dr. Wesley Autio
April 11, 2020, 9:30am to 3:00pm
UMass Cold Spring Orchard: 391 Sabin St., Belchertown, MA 01007
Many people do not realize that all apple varieties are reproduced by grafting -they are not grown from seed. For horticultural enthusiasts, one of the most satisfying techniques to master is grafting. Wes Autio will present a hands-on workshop on “bench grafting” and “cleft grafting” of apple trees. Other grafting techniques will be discussed. Proper tools and sharpening will be included. All workshop participants will graft several apple trees to take home!
