About this event

FRUIT TREE GRAFTING WORKSHOP

Day includes:

- Expert hands on tuition from Black Barn Farm orchardist and graftsman Charlie Showers

- Grafting notes

- 2 of your very own grafted apple trees to take home (choose from over 20 heritage and modern apple varieties)

- Black Barn Farm tour

Join us at Black Barn Farm in our old apple packing shed during while the moon is waxing and the sap is starting to flow as you learn the ancient art of grafting your very own fruit trees.

Charlie will take you through the different types of grafts, why graft at all, best time of year to graft, knife safety, rootstocks, scion wood and permaculture tips and tricks. You will be taken through a grafting demonstration and of course coaching through plenty of grafting practice before you eventually try your skills on your very own apple trees to take home.

Pocket knives are cool for whittling sharp sticks to poke TV celebrities with however they are dangerous and ineffective for grafting (we'll show you why). Felco Swiss made grafting knives are available for sale for $30 at the ticket checkout page, just after you enter your name and details, there will also be some available for sale for $35 on the day and of course feel free to BYO grafting knife.

This workshop is limited to just 25 tickets so book early, the last four years have sold out.

*Root stock and scion wood for additional varieties/trees over the two you select for your 'take home' trees is available on the day for: $5 per scion piece and $7 per root stock. (*dependent on scion wood availability)
