Apple Grafting Workshop Poster.

Kindling in partnership with Abundance Manchester and OTAGS are running two day-long workshops in March 2010 to introduce gardeners to the art of apple grafting (cutting & combining a shoot of one tree to the rootstock of another and binding them together until they grow into each other).

The workshops will take place at OTAGS and Parrswood Rural Education Centre and will involve the trainers explaining the history, purpose and methodology of tree grafting. Participants will then have the opportunity to graft the 'scions' of local apple trees onto rootstock to create new trees, which they will be able to take away to look after.

For more information about apple grafting visit Kindling's orchard management gallery and if you would like to take part please contact us.
