Apple Tree Grafting Workshop

 

Edible Landscapes has teamed up with The Orchard Project - we will be learning how to graft apple trees using the ancient 'whip and tongue' method with a knife.
Once you've learned this reliable technique you'll be able to create new trees year after year.
 

Lewis has grafted many 100's of fruit trees over the last seven years and has even taught school children the method successfully. You can see him in action here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WaK7EJxYl2k.

All equipment and tree material included and you'll get plenty of time to practice...and each participant will get to take away two trees!

Feel free to bring scions from trees you wish to propagate (select last years growth, ideally pencil diameter).

A limited number of concessionary tickets are available for £15. Contact lewis@theorchardproject.org.uk for more details.
