Dr Bob’s Grafting Workshop on March 15 at the Sunrise Ridge conference room was a great success!
We learned three of the four types of grafting:
1. Whip (& Tongue)
3. Chip Bud
Seeing the techniques demonstrated by Dr Bob just inches away from our faces and then having his immediate critique of our work was an irreplaceable way of learning a new skill. Dr Bob demonstrated the patience of Job with the newbies as he flipped our scion wood around (yes, buds always up!) and explained each technique step-by-step, over and over again till we got it.
The only grafting technique we didn’t do that day was Bridge (for repairing a damaged tree).
Thanks again to Dr Bob and the Board (Anne Woodward, Vor Hostetler, Charon Scott-Goldman, Jerry Gehrke & Kristine Gregonis) for another super informative event!
