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 a professional plant propagator. Pat McCracken 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: This workshop will be offered entirely outdoors. All participants will be required to wear face coverings throughout the program including while outdoors.
