Book for the 2017 grafting day at The Crossing Land 11am on Sunday July 30 Bring your grafting knives and grafting tape (if you have them please also bring named varieties of scion and rootstocks to share with others). There will be rootstocks and scion to purchase and graft on the day and a few spare grafting knives. If you have never grafted before, then this is a chance to learn. We will also be learning about root stock propogation and starting a rootstock bed at The Crossing to support future grafting days.
There is a $40 booking fee for attendance to the workshop which includes a hot lunch and one free grafted rootstock (registration half price for students and other concession card holders). Apples, Pears and Plums will be the focus of the day. Each tree rootstock supplied and grafted will cost $10. Neil’s data base will also allow you to match vigours, allowing more than one variety to be grafted onto a single rootstock without unbalancing the tree. All funds raised go to The Crossing. Please book soon so we can estimate numbers.
