SSFS Rootstock and Grafting Events

South Sound Fruit Society March Meetings

The March 7th meeting topic is going to be Rootstocks. Jeb Thurow will tell us all about rootstocks in preparation for our grafting workshop on the 18th. Both of these events will be at the Eastside Farm and Garden Center in Olympia. Jeb’s talk will be from 7 to 8 PM, approx.

The grafting workshop will be that Saturday, the 18th, from 10 to 2 (probably). Jerry Kehoe and Lori Brakken will explain and demonstrate 2 kinds of grafting of the rootstock to the scion wood to make a whole fruit tree. We will have various rootstock to purchase ($3) and a selection of scion wood ($1). Then we will have people available to help you graft right there or to do custom graphs for you ($6) .
