In a hands-on workshop, horticulturist Kevin Wilcox will teach participants how to successfully graft dwarf conifers, starting with a short slide presentation. Participants will prepare, cut and wrap the grafted conifer. Different conifer cultivars will be provided for people to graft, with selections from Oriental, Serbian, Norway and White spruces.
Attendees are welcome to bring selections of their own to try grafting. It is advised to bring up to two year’s growth, not an entire large branch, and all should bring a pair of hand pruners.
Kevin Wilcox is CT Hort’s resident horticulturist and has more than 30 years of experience in the field.
The workshop is limited to 20 people. Register here.
