Join Ted Hildebrant for a session on conifer grafting and learn some of its secrets. Ted will cover the basics of grafting including why we do it, how it is done, and what is required to be successful at it. He will also provide tips for the after-care and culture of young grafts in your own gardens. The session will cover the science behind the grafting process, demonstrate how it is done, and include an opportunity for questions and answers.


Ted Hildebrant is the owner/operator of Coldwater Pond Nursery in Phelps, NY along with his partner Elly Keyel and their dedicated team of helpers.
