Summer is a great time to successfully propagate from cuttings as well as graft fruit trees by chip budding. We will discuss and demonstrate the principles and process of chip bud grafting as well as how to clonally propagate many types of woody plants through softwood cuttings. You will gain confidence to put these new skills to use.
Learn more about Summer Chip Budding here.
Summer season budwood collection: Cut budwood early in the day. Immediately remove leaves and put budwood into a plastic bag with a damp paper towel (to keep the humidity as high as possible), enclose fully and wrap tightly.
