Grafting Apple Trees

(Come Grow with Us series)
April 17, 2019
12:00pm to 1:00pm

Curious about grafting? We’ll cover the basics—the why, when, and how to graft. Various grafting techniques will be discussed, along with how to care for your grafted tree.

Class will consist of presentation as well as hands-on demonstration. If you wish to bring home a grafted tree, please bring to class:

  • Heavy duty leather utility gloves
  • Utility knife
  • Newspaper
  • $5 to cover the cost of the grafted tree (payable to Miltona Greenhouses)

Led by David Vaske, owner and operator of Miltona Greenhouses in Alexandria.  David is a PhD BioChemist by trade, but his real passion is apples and fruit growing. He is in his 6th season of production at Miltona.

This workshop is part of the Come Grow with Us horticulture education series. Classes are free to attend, and open to the public.
