This Saturday we will be discussing propagating pineapples (from seeds and suckers/tops), rose apple, fig, citrus and prickly pear cactus. There will be a demo of doing an air layer with a graft at the same time! Yes, it can be done :) Mark will also tell us about his work in bench grafting grapes. Dave Sohn will bring some citrus budwood for grafting practice. Come by around 9-ish to socialize and get to know the other club members. James will bring some donuts for those at 9am. We will start the propagation discussion around 10am. We will be doing things a little differently on Saturday. The schedule is below.
Please bring any extra seeds or budwood to share with other CRFG members. If you have any seeds to share as well please bring them.
See everyone on Saturday.
