Spring is just around the corner, and now it’s time to think about propagating! (Plants, that is.) This year’s Spring Propagation Fair & Seed Swap will be Saturday, March 24, at Lane Community College in Eugene, from 11 – 5.
At this once a year event, a large selection of fruit tree scion wood is grafted on purchased root stock. This process is called grafting and budding. Last spring, I got two grafted pear trees which I potted up into 2 gallon containers of fertile soil for root development. Now, these are ready to transplant to their permanent locations in the orchard.
Come share seeds, fruit tree scion wood, and other plant propagation materials with your friends and neighbors.
