Sean Halloran, Plant Propagator, Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University[Dana Greenhouse Classroom, Arnold Arboretum]
Grafting is the technique of joining parts of separate plants in such a manner that they unite and continue their growth as one. Learn basic principles of grafting with an overview of different types of dormant-season grafts. Arnold Arboretum propagator Sean Halloran will provide step-by-step instructions so that you can practice both cleft and side veneer grafts using apple root stock. Simple after-care will be required until planting out in springtime.
Registrants will need to sign an Assumption of Risk and Release in order to participate in this class.
