Learn how to graft and make your own fruit tree, or have one of our members make it for you. Add varieties to existing trees. Beginners welcome! Choose from hundreds of antique and modern varieties of apples, pears, cherries, and plums. We will be selling EMLA 26 apple, OHxF 87 pear, K-5 cherry, and K-1 plum rootstock; scion wood for grafting; and sticks of figs, grapes, and kiwis for rooting. Stock up on berries and other plants, footies for insect protection, grafting knives, mason bees and houses, and other supplies. Learn all about pests and diseases and what to do about them. Find out about our native mason bees and how to care for them. We’ll have lots of experts on hand to try to answer all your fruit related questions. Spend some time with us at the show and learn all kinds of interesting things. Admission is free, but donations are greatly appreciated.
