Tree Grafting this weekend…
For several years, Marcher Apple Network (MAN) has run a grafting course; it has been a superb day of training in grafting skills. Participants took four grafted trees away; reports mention these babies are growing vigorously. And we’re running another on this year! Tom Adams, who is a very experienced horticulturalist https://www.tomtheappleman.co.uk/ with many years of growing and tending fruit trees, will provide guidance. If you’re interested in joining the fun, and learning too, do please book early for this. There are about twelve places.
You should bring with you a pair of secateurs whilst other course materials will be provided. (You are welcome to bring your own grafting tools and graft wood if you wish). Yes, and please think where those four (yes, four!) trees you graft will be planted next winter. The course will be held on 18th February from 10.00 to 15:00 at Cusop Village Hall, HR3 5RW, Grid reference SO 23340 42362 via http://gridreferencefinder.com/ with a light lunch taken at a local pub or café in Hay-on-Wye. (Lunch is not included in the course fee).
The course fee is £30.00 for members of Marcher Apple Network and £40.00 for non-members. Please phone Daniela on 01568-750282 to confirm a place or email firstname.lastname@example.org
