Learn to graft in this hands-on workshop and go home with your very own grafted apple tree. Learn why we might decide to graft a tree, what trees can be grafted, when to graft and grafting techniques, the tools you’ll need, and how to protect your graft. These techniques can be applied to any hardwood tree. Then practice grafting onto a rootstock.
