Annual Metchosin Pomological Society Grafting Session
March 18 @ 12:30 pm - 3:30 pm
The annual Metchosin Pomological Society Grafting Session takes place on March 18th from 12:30pm to 3:30pm at the Metchosin Community House.
We will provide rootstock in the form of M7 (Semi dwarf -50 % of regular size) and M111(80 % of regular size) as well as scion material and instruction on how to graft. The cost is 3$ per rootstock – otherwise the event is free! We will also have some Pear rootstock available for the same price.
Over the many years of doing this workshop we have propagated over 300 apple trees of mostly Heritage varieties and thereby making the world a sweeter, juicier,and more pie friendly place. Long live the Apple!
Just a note – we bring about 50 rootstock to this event and dole it out evenly to participants but if one wants to attend the BC Fruit Testers Annual Spring Sale the day before at Saanich Fairgrounds and purchase their own rootstock and then bring them the grafting workshop we are cool with that – we are agents of the Apple and our secret plan is to cover the Whole World in Apple trees!
