Location: Kotare Village, Hawkes Bay, New Zealand
Tutor: Kay Baxter
There is no one book, or even several, that you can easily pick up to glean this information from. Kay has learnt to propagate fruit trees from the old gardeners and nurserymen who she worked with for over 30 years. She has put together this workshop, and been teaching it for over 20 years, so that you can have the knowledge you need to be able to save the old fruit trees in your own bio region, and grow them on the rootstocks that suit your soils and your needs. This workshop will empower you with the information you need to be able to grow your entire orchard yourself, and you will get as part of the cost a range of basic rootstocks, cuttings, scion wood and seeds to make a start.
