Japanese Maple Grafting Workshop

Full—Waitlist Started

Tim and Matt Nichols, Nichols Nursery

  • Saturday, July 29, 2017 – 1:00 pm4:30 pm

Grafting is the only method possible to propagate some plants. Many rare and expensive plants are grafted. In this workshop, participants learn to graft Japanese maples from two experts. Tim and Matt Nichols will discuss and demonstrate grafting techniques and then will individually assist each participant as they graft their own plants.

JCRA staff will collect scion wood prior to the workshop. However, participants will be asked ahead of time which cultivar they're most interested in grafting. The workshop's fee covers all needed supplies, excluding a grafting knife unless paid for at the time of registration. Each participant will graft a minimum of five Japanese maples.

Note: Each participant will need a sharp, quality grafting knife. If you do not already own one, please select a registration option that includes a grafting knife. Grafting knives will be ordered on July 14 so please register before then if you require a grafting knife.

$100.00 for members; $120.00 for members. Grafting knives are available for $20.00 extra.
Advance registration is closed. Registration is limited to 15 people and is considered complete when payment is received.
Program cancellations can be made up to two weeks prior to the program's start date. No refunds will be made after this time. A 15% cancellation fee applies.
