Join us at Hulme Community Garden Centre for a morning or afternoon session of heritage apple grafting with local expert Sam Bolton (National Trust/Grafting For Orchards) and Dan from The Moss Cider Project.

You'll learn the not-so-dark art of taking a scion (a short cutting from a fruit tree that is from the previous years growth) and splicing (grafting) on to a rootstock (drawfing - so your tree wont grow too big).

For your ticket price you'll walk away with 2 trees. To put that into perspective you'd pay between £25-£30 for a 2-3 year old heritage apple tree.

All supplies, tools and equipment will be provided for you.
