Sandhills Horticultural Society Spring 2022 Event: Tree Grafting Workshop
March 14 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
After teaching a class on the ancient art of grafting to the SCC Landscape Gardening students, we decided to invite Leanne Kenealy Atkins back to give our SHS members the same opportunity. In this workshop, you will learn the simple grafting techniques that have been practiced for over 4,000 years to produce better wine, olive oil, and various fruits and how to demystify one of the most interesting types of plant propagation. The methods taught can translate to any plant, but this workshop will focus on the majestic and ancient Bald Cypress, Taxoduim disticum. The class fee covers instruction and supplies to graft up to 4 Bald Cypress rootstocks. Class size is limited to 20. Members: $40.00, Non-members: $50.00. We may add another class in the afternoon if interest is strong.
