A grafting session has been arranged for the 20 September at 1.30 pm.on the property of our secretary, Paul, Hillview Rd, Alexandra.
2 free rootstocks per membership should be available. Unfortunately the nursery was unable to supply our total request for pear rootstock, so these will initially be limited to 1 per membership, although obviously if supply exceeds demand we will increase this.
Members of the public who attend can purchase 1 apple rootstock for 10 dollars. Alternatively they can join the branch on the day for 50 dollars, and will then qualify for the membership deal (i.e. 2 free rootstocks).
It would be appreciated if people who wish to buy rootstock have small denomination notes available as it makes transactions easier and quicker.
We will be serving afternoon tea at the meeting. If you wish to bring along your latest culinary success it will be welcome, but we are quite happy if you just bring yourself.
