You grow fruit trees to enjoy the bounty, but did you know that the part that grows in the ground is also important for the size or health of your fruit trees? Join us as we discuss rootstocks for different fruit trees we can grow here in Durham and why it matters.

In the second half of class learn what to do if the top of your favorite grafted fruit tree fails. While you could always graft a new scion onto the rootstock, why not take the opportunity to make more rootstock for several scions? Stool layering is a simple propagation method that can be used with in-ground plants as well as potted plants.

Join the Extension Master Gardener℠ Volunteers of Durham County to learn gardening tricks and tips at the Briggs Avenue Community Garden. Sessions will be led by Kat Causey and Sara Smith.

Two identical sessions of this class are available. Click below to register. REGISTRATION REQUIRED.

Parking is available along the street. Please bring your own chair if you would like one. 

This class is part of the Bull City Gardener Learning Series and is open to everyone.
