Learn how to graft apple trees!


Topworking Apple Tree Grafts and Hands-on Pruning

  • Saturday, March 25, 2023, 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

Want to have an apple tree with more than one variety of apples on the tree?  Learn the science and art of topworking apple tree grafts.  It is fun and easy and so rewarding--you could have a tree with 10 different apple varieties on one tree!  Topworking grafts are pretty straightforward to do and you will likely have good success getting the graft to take.

We will be working on the apple trees at Tioga Rural Ministry--they are located just across the street from the entrance to Home Central in Owego.  As a bonus, you will be able to practice pruning the apple trees as well as a few peach trees.  Take home some pruning branches to try topworking on your own tree!
