GRAFTING WORKSHOP

Friday 6 September 2013

7.30 pm

Where:  St Francis Community Church, 92 Mansel Av, Hillcrest, Hamilton.

Cost:  $ 10 per person (NZTCA member)  $ 20  for non-members

This charge covers three rootstocks (trees) for each person, workshop materials (safety gloves, grafting tape, labels), tutor and venue.

This is a hands-on workshop. After an introduction and demonstration by the tutor, you can have a practice of the techniques on willow or similar material. You can then graft your three rootstocks, choosing from a wide range of apple and pear scion that will be provided. These are yours to take home and nurture!

WHAT YOU NEED TO BRING: 

A grafting knife or a Stanley craft knife with a new blade, and secateurs.

There will also be a good selection of scion from other fruiting trees such as stone fruit, for people to take if they have existing trees to regraft or rootstocks at home. Please consider bringing some scion if you have something interesting or of value to share.
