Chicago Botanic Garden, Glencoe, Illinois
According to the Midwest Fruit Explorers, “If you have enough room to grow a rose bush, then you have enough room to grow assorted fruit trees.” This weekend the Chicago Botanic Garden invites you to learn how to do exactly this at the Midwest Fruit Explorers Grafting Workshop.
This hands-on workshop will introduce you to the best varieties of fruit trees that can be grown in this area. The Midwest Fruit Explorers will teach interested gardeners how to graft and care for their own fruit trees. The experts indicate that apple, pear and plum trees grow extraordinarily well in this area. So, the Explorers will explain the horticultural techniques of grafting and caring for these particular trees. First, they will assist each participant in picking the ideal tree from an assorted available collection, prior to leading demonstrations on how to graft the root stock. After the grafting lesson is complete, they will additionally discuss longer-term methods of caring for your growing tree.
Admission to the Midwest Fruit Explorers Grafting Workshop is free, as is admittance into the Garden. The only charge incurred will be for parking and the trees that you decide to purchase.
So this Sunday, visit the Chicago Botanic Garden and embark on a growing adventure. With detailed step by step instructions, attendees will be prepared to plant their purchased trees directly into the ground!
