Grafting Party

Grafting Party – 28th of April 2013

It was a great, hot and instructive day with John talking about all the different benefits to grafting and demonstrating many grafting techniques, including rind and bark grafting on citrus. It was a pleasure to watch a pro at work and we are much better prepared to graft at home. Thank you John! Sally brought with her a couple potted rootstock apples that were grafted at the workshop and shared with participants – much appreciated!

It’s great to have an attentive audience…

We all learned a lot and enjoyed it tremendously at the same time! Hope to have many more gatherings around gardening and sustainability!
