Save or propagate the old family apple tree by learning how to graft it onto a new root to create a new tree! Course fee includes all supplies (handouts, grafting bands, sealant, etc.) and one semi-dwarf rootstock (available for $6 each from instructor, supplies are limited) and a selection of non-patented scions (twigs of desired apple varieties). Each student should bring a sharp, straight bladed knife (some will be provided for use during the class), good fitting leather gloves recommended. Bring your own “scion” wood if you have some. A “scion” is a 1-2 year old twig, the longer the better, cut directly before class. Keep scions moist by putting them in plastic bags with moist paper towels, leaves or moss.
