Scion Swap and Grafting Demo 14th of August 1pm

(1 customer review)

From: $10.00

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.
SKU: N/A Category:


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.
