One-Day Short Course
This course is for gardeners, people interested in community orchards, local food production and for everyone who loves apples! Have a go at planning your own orchard, or your community orchard, and learn how to propagate new trees by grafting – you’ll learn two techniques and take away your very own heritage apple tree.
Apples for All pairs well (excuse the pun!) with the Community Orchards day course in May.
What will I do and learn?
- Discover the short history of top fruit production
- Apple orchard planning and variety selection
- Consider pollination and rootstock
- An introduction on tree forms and pruning techniques
- Hands-on grafting workshop using t-bud and chip bud techniques
- Receive feedback and advice from our experienced tutor
