Grafting course at Tom Adams Fruit Tree Nursery
This winter I will be running two grafting courses. One on Saturday 3rd March and one on Sunday 4th March 2018, at Tom Adams Fruit Tree Nursery, Weston Rhyn, Oswestry, Shropshire, SY10 7NQ.
On this course, which includes a tour of the nursery and orchard, participants will bench graft three trees to take home.
You’ll also learn
- Different grafting techniques
- Theory of grafting and reasons for it
- How to select the right rootstock for different situations
- How to collect and store propagation material
- How to care for your growing trees
A range of Apple rootstocks will be provided, as will a range of propagation material from local heritage and modern varieties. Grafting knives are also provided. Please bring your own secateurs. If you have a favourite Apple you want to propagate, please bring along cuttings for grafting.
The course costs £60, including a light lunch.
Please contact Tom to book a place.
I have run both Grafting and Pruning courses for different organisations such as the Marcher Apple Network, Old Trafford Amateur Gardeners Society (OTAGS), The National Trust, Cheshire Landscape Trust, Fordhall Farm (Shropshire), and for various community orchards and gardens.
