Look Inside

 

Self Paced 20-hour course to help you understand more about budding grafting

This is a course for anyone who has a passion to learn more about plant propagation and explore the scope and breadth of what can be produced through grafting and budding.
These techniques may be more time consuming than some other propagation techniques, and can require time and practice to perfect, but they do offer the possibility of producing more useful, hardier, and more productive plants. Grafted plants have greater value. This course has been developed with input from a team who have not only a background in the science and theory, but have also worked in a commercial nursery, propagating plants by hands on grafting.
