In  the Spotlight...

Interested in trying your hand at grafting apple trees?  Two upcoming workshops are scheduled, on March 12 (Mountain Grove) and March 26 (Springfield), from 1-4pm on both days.  We will provide apple rootstocks, one-on-one instruction, and expertise to help you hone your skills as a grafter.  You provide a sharp tool and shoots from a favorite apple cultivar (or you can use the shoots that we provide).  You will go home with two grafted apple trees and confidence in your ability as a grafter.  See the Greene County MU Extension office calendar for more information.
