Apple Tree Grafting Workshop

Iowa State University Extension

Come learn a fruit-ful skill at the upcoming Grafting Workshop. The workshop is with Patrick O’Malley, Iowa State University Extension Commercial Horticulture Field Specialist. It will be held at the Mahaska County Extension Office (212 North I Street, Oskaloosa) Friday, March 31, 6:30—8:30 PM.

There will be discussion on different grafting techniques. We will use a whip and tongue to graft apple rootstock to selected scions. Each

participant will self-graft two apple trees to take home. There will be a variety of scions to choose from. Cost of the workshop is $35.00 per person. If multiple attendees sign up at the same time, the cost is $30 per person.

Participants may bring scions from known cultivars to graft also. Those wishing to bring scions to graft should contact Mahaska County

Extension office for information on scion collection. Please note that newer varieties with plant patent protection can not be propagated. Additional rootstock will be available for $5 each.

Registration Deadline for this workshop is Thursday, March 16. To register call the Mahaska County Extension Office 641-673-5841.
