Fruit tree grafting course 13 February

Suffolk Traditional Orchard Group
Fruit Tree Grafting Course Sat 13th Feb  2016 10am – 4pm

Would you like to learn to graft fruit trees? Is there a favourite tree that you would like to propagate? Perhaps there’s a tasty apple in a friend’s garden you would like to grow or a special plum you remember from childhood? And you can also help us by grafting trees that we will give to amenity orchards in Suffolk.
If the event is oversubscribed we will run further courses.
Workshop format:
· Discussion of traditional fruit tree propagation techniques.
· Demonstration of grafting and budding
· Practical experience in grafting, mainly using the whip-and-tongue graft method.
 
Venue: Suffolk Wildlife Trust’s Foxburrow Farm, Saddlemaker’s Lane, Melton, Woodbridge, Suffolk IP12 1NA

Cost: FREE - EVERYONE WELCOME!

Booking essential. Further info available on booking. Tea and coffee provided, please bring your own lunch.
