Since apples do not reproduce true from seed, propagation depends on grafting the desired variety onto a reliable rootstock. Expert hands-on instruction by Tom Burford and the Vintage Virginia Apples staff will introduce you to the fine art of grafting. Each participant will graft two trees from a choice of scionwood from the Vintage Virginia Apples collection to take home with them. A copy of The Fruit Grafter's Handbook[vintage-virginia-apples.myshopify.com] is included in the price of the workshop. Extra rootstock will be available for sale after this workshop.
