Cosa farete

(Please note that I run other courses on apples: an introduction (all year), pruning (winter), whip n tongue grafting (March), and crossing / breeding (May)).

Learn chip budding in order to create new apple trees.

Apples don’t come true from seed – in other words, planting a pip will result in an apple tree but only a new ‘wilding’ variety. To create a new tree of the same variety (e.g. Rosemary Russett) a scion (a cutting) or a bud of new growth needs to be attached to a rootstock.

Chip budding takes place in summer.

Learn to:
1. Prepare bud stick, and cut chip bud
2. Remove chip of tissue from rootstock, and match new chip bud
3. Tape new chip bud in place

Practise on surplus material.

Chip bud two new apple trees and take them home. (Buds from different varieties will be available.)
Other things to note
Great walking from the door in the Peak District National Park. You are welcome to leave your car before/after.

Bring (if you have them): plastic bags, thin gloves, secateurs, Stanley Knife.

Ecco il tuo host, James

Host su Airbnb dal 2014
  • Identità verificata
I have been growing fruit for 15 years and my passion is apples. I have developed an orchard of over 50 varieties of apples, pears and plums. Grown in many different forms: step-overs, espaliers, cordons, ballerinas and standards. I graft (whip ‘n’ tongue) all my own trees, and have experimented with apple crossing (creating a new variety). I am in the Northern Fruit Group.
I have been running tours at Farlands for 5 years.
