Summer bud-graft lessons

Creating apple trees by grafting is fun and sometimes infectious when you realize how easy/successful it is. From mid-July through August we make new trees for spring sales by ‘chip budding’.

Hands-on experience is the best lesson for new comers to this craft. Skipley Farm /Gil Schieber will involve you in grafting hundreds of trees @ $25 per contact hour. You can return home with any number of trees and varieties @ $3 each. All supplies included and available for sale in the event you want to go ‘pro’.

Calling ahead is recommended. Gil is around to perform most every day 8 to 8. Gil Schieber 206-679-6576
