Apple Grafting Workshop
Winterbourne Medieval Barn
10am–4pm in The Cartshed
Learn how to graft apple trees on this course under the tuition of Ben Raskin, a previous commercial fruit grower and an enthusiastic, effective and very knowledgeable teacher, now Head of Horticulture at The Soil Association.
You will learn why we graft, how to graft and put these skills into practice by forming at least three grafts that you can take away at the end of the day.
We will provide some common varieties for grafting. If you have a favourite that you wish to propagate, then bring your own wood to graft. If there is a particular variety that you wish to graft but do not have the wood, please let us know and we will attempt to procure some wood for you. The only equipment you will need to bring is a very sharp knife (e.g. a Stanley Knife) and some secateurs.
Tea coffee and biscuits will be provided, but please bring your own lunch. The workshop is limited to 8 people, but if demand is sufficient an overflow course would take place the following weekend (day tbc).
Cost £45 for all materials and tuition for the day. This course might make a very suitable present. Click below to book online via Ticketsource.
