Budding can be used to convert an existing tree to a new variety, fix pollination problems, create a multigraft or fruit salad tree, fix a grafted tree that has died back to the rootstock, or convert a seedling that has come up in the compost pile to a known variety.

It's even easier than the winter grafting techniques because the grafting wood is collected on the same day, so no storage is needed. However, some planning is still required.

After completing this course you'll understand how to do the technique and when it's the best option. You'll also have a plan in place to select and prepare fruit trees for budding months in advance to improve your chances of success.

What's included in this course: 

  • Unit 1: Summer budding (article)
  • Unit 2: Summer budding (video)
  • Unit 3: Plan your budding this summer (activity)
  • Unit 4: Summer budding recap (article)
  • Unit 5: Practice summer budding (activity)
