Learn how to graft you own apple tree by hand using the traditional ‘whip and tongue’ knife method, and take two trees home with you. Book your spot here.
You will learn about the history and theory of grafting and have plenty of time to make practise cuts before creating two trees to take home (with a range of varieties and root stock to choose from to suit your situation).
We will be outdoors, so please come dressed appropriately.
Hot drinks and snacks will be provided. There is also a cafe and some good shops nearby.
Discounts apply to registered Orchard Leaders – if you would like to claim your discount, please contact Lewis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
