Master Gardeners Present: Grafting Backyard Fruit Trees

Interested in improving the quality and variety in your backyard orchard? Join the Master Gardeners of Amador County on Saturday, February 10, for a class on grafting backyard fruit trees.  Local Master Gardeners will present a hands-on clinic covering grafting techniques for home gardeners.  Whip, tongue and cleft grafts will be demonstrated and practiced.  Bud grafts will also be discussed.  You’ll also learn how to grow a fruit salad tree.  A variety of fruit tree cuttings will also be available for participants to take home along with various handouts too.  The class is free and open to the public.  No reservations are required.  The class will be held in the GSA building on Airport Rd. on Sutter Hill, from 9 a.m. to noon.   For questions, call the UCCE Master Gardeners of Amador County at the UC Cooperative Extension Office from 10am to noon, Tuesday through Thursday, 223-6838.
