Upcoming Event: Fruit Grafting and Scion Wood Exchange

Saturday, March 20 Grafting Fruit Trees (12-2:00 p.m.) with John HolzwartDo you wish ornamental crabapples had large juicy apples? Maybe your fruiting apple tree is too much to handle and you wish you had a crabapple. These are just a couple of reasons to practice the age old art of grafting. For centuries, people have been changing fruit trees to suit their needs, and you can too! In this class, we will each graft and take home two semi-dwarf trees of your choice (apple, pear or plum). Root stocks and scion wood (fruit tree cuttings) provided. Additional materials will be available for a fee, if you want to graft more trees. If you have a sharp knife bring it with you, but there will be some available as well.

Fee: $16 Sponsored by and held at the University of Wisconsin, Sheboygan. To register call 920-459-6617.
