Upcoming Grafting Workshops

    Upcoming Grafting Workshops

    GraftingGrafting is the age-old practice of joining plants to specific root systems to get the desirable benefits of both parts. USU Extension provides several upcoming workshops to teach the science and techniques of grafting. Workshop participants will graft two apple trees on semi-dwarf rootstock that they will take home at the end of the class. Participants can select from the various heirloom and modern apple varieties supplied. Materials for the class will be supplied as part of the $20 registration fee (some sites may be higher to pay for room rental). Additional rootstocks and scion wood may be available to purchase at the end of the class for an additional $5 fee.

     

    Upcoming classes are listed below. If you are unable to attend, two Extension videos can teach you how:
