Scion Swap and Grafting Demo 14th of August 1pm (now 29/8/21)

(1 customer review)

From: $10.00

Please note: Due to the current public health order we are unable to run this workshop on the 14th. We have postponed the day to 28/8/21 if the lockdown has been lifted. If the lockdown gets extended we can post your trees to you at your cost upon arrangement. Alternatively you may be able to pick up your trees at the Bilpin market if the law permits at the time. I recommend people check their personal circumstances on the day to make sure they can attend an open air market for a contactless pickup. We are in the process of trying to make a “how to graft” video with a local orchardist that we can send to you.
Please also note: The cost of your ticket includes one apple rood stock (mm 102), one pear root stock and as many scions you like from our spreadsheet database. 
Thank you for your understanding.
The dream is that every year we can hold a day for anyone who is interested in getting hold of scions to be able to come and get them and some information on their attributes. A large amount of the scions this year will be provided by Neil Barraclough in Victoria. We also hope to be able to send on the scions to another location in Australia after the day to create a network of people saving varieties.
There will be several orchardists there on the day and John Galbraith has been kind enough to offer to demonstrate a few grafting methods. After that you will be able to take a bare rootstock and the scion’s to graft yourself
I have ordered enough rootstock for everyone to take home 1 grafted apple and 1 grafted pear. Please let me know if you would like more. Any equipment (knives, grafting tape, etc.) you can bring will be greatly appreciated I’m sure. There will also be 50 established apple trees there we hope to dedicate to saving varieties.

The Spreadsheet of what scions/rootstock will be sent to you once you have bought the ticket. Feel free to add to the list if you are sure you can bring the scions/rootstock on the day. If the item is in red text that means it’s coming from Victoria, if you can supply it please let me know so I don’t have to pay to get them sent to us.
