Grafting and budding are cheap and fun ways to increase the number and range of plant varieties in your garden. Both grafting and budding are much easier than you would think, and can be attempted on a wide range of plants including fruit trees and ornamental shrubs. During this class you will learn a range of grafting and budding techniques and learn how to select and store the material. Please bring a grafting knife and secateurs if you have them (not essential).
