Apple Bench Grafting

Learn to make your own apple trees through bench grafting! In this class, you will learn how to take a small portion of an apple tree, the scion, and join it with a set of apple tree roots, known as rootstock, to create a new tree.

  • We will briefly discuss basic tree care and how it’s affected by rootstock selection.
  • Participants can choose to graft from the following varieties or bring scionwood of their own: Honeycrisp, Keepsake, Connell Red, Liberty, Haralson, Honeygold, Sweet Sixteen, Cortland, Chestnut Crab, or State Fair.
  • Additional rootstock will be available for sale on the day of the class.

Participants will graft and take home 3 trees that will grow to around 12 ft tall.
