Amador MG Public Class Schedule

Fruit Tree Grafting Clinic:  February 11, plus 2012 Amador Master Gardener Class Schedule 

Join Master Gardener Dennis Miller for a Grafting Clinic in Jackson this Saturday, February 11. The clinic starts at 9am at the GSA building at 12200-B Airport Road, Jackson.

Learn various methods of fruit tree grafting at this hands-on class for home gardeners. Master Gardeners will demonstrate techniques and types of equipment used in grafting. 

We will have a number of scions from many of the more popular apple, peach, and other fruit trees to share.  Generally you can graft fruit tree varieties with pits to other varieties with pits, and fruit tree varieties with seeds to other varieties with seeds.

Please feel free to bring your own scions to share with others.  Use pruners that have been disinfected with 10% bleach water, wrap the scion cuttings in damp newspaper right after cutting them, place them in a plastic bag, label the bag with the variety name, and then store the bag in the refrigerator until you come to class.

See the attached list of free classes offered in 2012 by the Amador Master Gardeners. Mark your calendars and join us throughout the year for gardening information and tips.
