Grafting is the only method possible to propagate some plants. Many rare and expensive plants are grafted. In this workshop, participants learn to graft Japanese maples from two experts. Tim and Matt will discuss and demonstrate grafting techniques and then will individually assist each participant as they graft their own plants.
JCRA staff will collect scion wood prior to the workshop. However, participants will be asked ahead of time which cultivar they're most interested in grafting. The workshop's fee covers all needed supplies, including grafting knives. Each participant will graft a minimum of five Japanese maples.
We may schedule an afternoon workshop on the same day once the morning workshop is full and if there's enough demand for another workshop. If you're interested in an afternoon workshop, please let us know.
