Fifty more apple trees grafted

Postby MarkEvens » Mon Apr 28, 2014 10:47 am

We held a very well attended grafting workshop on March 15th, for which the Riversmeet facility in Cockermouth proved ideally suited. Particpants from both NCOG and Riversmeet were shown how to graft new apple trees of a wide range of varieties (scions) onto various rootstocks (depending on the desired ultimate size). In all fifty trees were grafted which was a fine achievement. Hopefully now all the grafts have taken. If not the rootstock can be kept for another attempt next year (or for bud grafting in the summer).
