  • “Grafting Vegetables”

    ActivitiesBotanical GardenEducation

    Grafting vegetables is not a new practice but one that many gardeners have little to no experience. Grafting vegetables has many possible advantages including resistance to root diseases, tolerance to temperature extremes, tolerance to salinity, and higher yields. This workshop will provide students with information about grafting vegetables, what materials are needed, and sources for plants and materials. The class includes a hands-on grafting. All participants will receive a grafted tomato plant and an un-grafted plant of the same variety  to take home. The plants you graft during the class will also be available for you to pick up a few weeks later if the graft is successful. The class runs from 12:30pm to 2pm. 
    Instructors: Dr. Joe Willis, LSU AgCenter, Orleans Parish Horticulture Extension Agent & Anna Timmerman, LSU AgCenter, Jefferson Parish Associate Horticulture Extension Agent
    Class is located in the Lath House/Garden Study Center, New Orleans Botanical Garden
    The class is $15 per person and registration is needed. To register or ask questions, please reach Susan Capley, Eduaction Director, at (504)483-9473 or e-mail scapley@nocp.org.
