WHEN: Sunday August 13th. at 1:00 PM
WHERE: Please join the Redwood Empire chapter to get access to our email list. Address is sent out to members on the email list.
Come learn how or practice your summer bud grafting and participate in our summer scion exchange.
Think about what really good fruit varieties you could share.
The budwood should be cut the day of the event, labeled, and immediately put in a cooler.
Make sure you do not bring patented varieties.
Apricots, Peaches, Nectarines, Plums, Pluots, Apples, Pears and Cherries can all be propagated in the summer.
Almost all of the commercial fruit trees are budded in the summer.
Peaches/nectarines, in particular, seem to do better with summer budding.
Bring your offerings and also select what varietals you would like to have.
Our illustrious plant biologist, David Ulmer, will instruct how to chip bud for the most success.
See you all there.
