Fruit Tree Budding
Wednesday, August 21 2019 from 6:30PM - 8:30PM
Budding is a type of grafting. This propagation technique is used by plant and fruit producers to put desirable tree varieties on hardy rootstock. Budding is a useful skill that can also be practiced by the home gardener.
There is a $20 material fee associated with this class. Class size is limited to 30 people. Class participants will receive two apple rootstocks and fruit scion wood to bud together. You will be able to take home 2 self-budded trees to grow in your own garden.
Apple wood will be used in this course, however, the techniques described will work for many fruit and ornamental plants. Please join us for this fun, hands-on workshop and learn the technique of budding!
This event is open to the public, but also counts for a Learning Lab event for Salt Lake County Master Gardeners.
•Cost: $20 (plus processing fee)
