Apple Tree Grafting and Pruning Workshops

The two workshops will combine the basic theories of grafting and pruning, followed by a series of practical demonstrations and plenty of hands on practice. Tea and coffee will be provided. Lunch can also be purchased in the pub.
Come and learn how to graft fruit trees with local experts who will lead this two-hour workshop designed for the novice propagator. Skill at grafting is the true mark of gardening expertise, but it’s also easy to learn and fun to do.
