Masterclass’ in grafting with John Pinniger
from the Heritage Fruits Society

Sunday 14th  August 1pm – 4pm


Masterclass’ in grafting: the dates below are now full but John will run more classes on demand so please reply to him if you are interested, John Pinniger email:

Details: John Pinniger of the Heritage Fruits Society will run a ‘masterclass’ in grafting for anyone who would like to improve their skills – or learn the basics of fruit tree grafting. This will be hands-on. It involves learning the reasons for, and the science of grafting, and then plenty of time to practice. Budding will also be discussed, but winter is not the best time to do it. Your questions answered. Bring a sharp knife if you have one.
You may not ever graft another tree, but we will discuss the reasons for grafting, when to graft and what to graft, so you understand why and when, and see examples of grafts. We will concentrate on apples, but discuss a wide range of plant.
There is no cost, but the third hour of the three-hour session will be assistance with the grafting of Heritage Fruits Society’s trees, including potting, labelling, etc. (part learning, part application)

Sessions are planned for Wednesday 10th August 9am – noon  and Sunday 14th  August 1pm – 4pm.

Maximum 5 per session – more sessions if there is enough interest. Location will be Fairfield, accessible by public transport – address sent with acceptance.

To book please contact with preferred date and subject line GRAFTING.
