You don’t have to own an orchard to try grafting. Learn how to do it in your very own backyard from USU Extension.
Grafting is the age-old practice of joining plants to specific root systems to get the desirable benefits of both parts. Check out these grafting videos from the USU Extension Youtube channel for an introduction to grafting, and attend an upcoming workshop to learn more.
At a USU Extension grafting workshop, you will learn the science and techniques of grafting. Participants will graft two apple trees on semi-dwarf rootstock that they will take home with them at the end of the class, and can select from the various heirloom and modern apple varieties supplied. Materials for the class will be supplied as part of the $20 registration fee (some sites may be higher to pay for room rental). Additional rootstocks & scion wood may be available to purchase at the end of the class for an additional $5 fee.
