Raleigh and Annie will be teaching a basic grafting workshop in collaboration with the Apollo Beach Garden Club on Saturday, March 6th, 2021 from 10:00am – 12:00pm. Location: Third Insight Design and Nursery, 6520 Richies Way, Apollo Beach, Florida (Apollo Beach Racquet and Fitness Club).
If you have any “Florida” avocados started or would like to start one now (Jan. 2021) you can bring it planted in a pot to graft during the workshop. Other suitable plants to practice on are hibiscus, if you bring one make sure to know the color/ type of flowers to exchange with other members. All the plants that you bring to graft have to be in a pot, well watered the day/days before and healthy.
Please bring your own x-acto knife, razor blade or if you already own one a grafting knife, isopropyl alcohol and your seedling or hibiscus. A hat and water are recommended. ** A very sharp Victorinox pairing knife can also work.
The Club will provide parafilm and bud wood.
