Field Trip 15th November 2014 - Paul & Mary Roudenko's property

Paul is a hobby grower of fruit trees, a good grafter and a very good tree grower. He will tell you what he does to get the best growth out of your trees and he will also teach you the various methods of grafting your citrus rootstocks so buy a couple off the trade table at the next meeting and bring them along. If you have any scion wood you want grafted onto the rootstock, either bring it along or let Sheryl know what you would like. Paul has many established very healthy fruit trees.

Guest Speaker 9th October 2014 - Grafting Workshop by Barbara Beerling

This will be a hands on grafting session. Please bring your grafting tools if you have grafting skills. We would really like you to help the novices at our grafting workshop at the next meeting. There will be a montage of Daley’s Fruit Trees grafting instruction videos which will be shown before commencing the practical session. We have secured plenty of mulberry branches for you to practice different grafting techniques. Although you will not be grafting citrus, Sheryl has acquired citrus rootstock for you to take home to practice what you have learnt on the night.
