Instructor Sean Halloran, Plant Propagator, Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University, will lead a workshop on Grafting Woody Plants in the Dana Greenhouse of the Arnold Arboretum, 1050 Centre Street in Jamaica Plain, on Saturday, February 24 from 9 – 12:30.
Grafting is the technique of joining parts of separate plants in such a manner that they unite and continue their growth as one. Learn basic principles of grafting with an overview of different types of dormant-season grafts. Arnold Arboretum propagator Sean will provide step-by-step instructions so that you can practice both cleft and side veneer grafts using apple root stock. Simple after-care will be required until planting out in springtime.
Registrants will need to sign an Assumption of Risk and Release in order to participate in this class. $62 for Arboretum members, $75 for nonmembers. Register at www.arboretum.harvard.edu.
