Berkshire Botanical Garden
Come join Broken Arrow Nurseries grafting guru, Adam Wheeler, for this hands-on workshop that explores the world of grafting heirloom apples. Participants will be given a brief lecture that explores the methods and intricacies of this time-tested craft. Following the lecture, participants will put this newfound knowledge to work by grafting a few specimen apples of their own to take home.
Adam Wheeler started playing with plants at Broken Arrow in 2004 after completing his B.S. degree in Urban Forestry and Landscape Horticulture at the University of Vermont. His favorite responsibilities at Broken Arrow Nursery include plant propagation and the acquisition and development of new plants. He is a past recipient of the Young Nursery Professional Award from the New England Nursery Association and is the current Vice President of the North American Maple Society. He loves to share his passion for plants through photography and educational outreach.
