11th annual national scion wood exchange day
February 2, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Bring, swap and buy scions for common, uncommon and vanishingly rare fruit tree varieties.
Mid-Shires Orchard Group will be on hand providing a grafting service.
PTES will be present to offer orchard advice and information about the work we’re doing in traditional orchards. We’ll also have a lot of varieties to sell or swap.
Date: Saturday 02-Feb-19, from 10.00am to 4:00pm (6 hours)
Venue: Buckingham Garden Centre, Tingewick Road, Buckingham, MK18 4AE
Activities: Bring your scionwood to share and swap with others, or offer or acquire for a small donation.
This event will feature hundreds of rare, local and heritage apple, pear, plum and cherry varieties. They
can be grafted on the day (as a paid service) onto purchased rootstocks of choice, or be taken home for
grafting to make new fruit trees. This is a really great way to obtain and distribute rare and unusual
varieties of fruit tree for gardens, home or community orchards, fields and hedgerows.
Price: FREE entry! Scionwood may be swapped for free, or acquired/provided for a small donation per
piece or bundle, at the supplier’s discretion. Rootstocks are at their retail prices, discounted for five or
more. There is also a charge for the grafting service per tree, with a discount for five trees or more.
