About this event
FRUIT TREE GRAFTING
The Guyton's are known internationally for their exceptional collection of NZ Fruit/Apple Trees and offering the opportunity to learn how to graft your own Trees. All Rootstock will be provided. The course Fee incl. 1 Tree per booking, extra Trees can be purchased at $7.- per Tree (please bring cash). A substantial choice of grafts from the SCES collection is provided but you also welcome to bring your own.
SEED BALLS FOR NATIVE RESTORATION PROJECTS
This is a nifty and fun way to get native seeds out there especially in hard to get to gullies and under long standing gorse and broom. Using compost, clay and water you blend the seeds into ‘seed balls’ which can then be thrown quite large distances. They are protected until they sprout naturally when conditions are right. This is a fun practical workshop and you get to take the seed balls you make home. Suitable for all ages!
GROWING NATIVES FROM SEEDS OR CUTTINGS
This course teaches you how easy it is to grow a range of native plants for little or no cost. You will learn simple techniques for different plants that you need to know to be successful, and if you grow more than you need native trees make great gifts and you can sell them easily. You will get some free cuttings that you gather during the course.
