Grafting Workshop
Saturday, March 10, 2018 - 9:00am to 12:00pm

We are offering the Grafting Workshop twice this year, and keeping the class size smaller in order to provide more attention and assistance to each participant.  Please choose one date (or both if you really love grafting!), as they are the same workshop.

Since apples do not reproduce true from seed, propagation depends on grafting the desired variety onto a reliable rootstock.   Expert hands-on instruction by the Vintage Virginia Apples staff will introduce you to the fine art of grafting.  Each participant will graft two trees from a choice of scionwood from the Vintage Virginia Apples collection to take home with them, along with a copy of our grafting handbook. Extra rootstock and scion will be available for sale after this workshop. 

If you have them, feel free to bring a pair of handheld pruners and a grafting knife- please make sure they are sharp!  If you do not have these tools, there will be several available during the class to practice with or you can purchase your own when you arrive.

Grafting 1 and Grafting 2 are the same workshop on different dates.  We are keeping class sizes smaller this year to better assist participants.

Cancellation Policy:  For refund, cancellations must be received 10 days prior to event.
