KAYSVILLE - Get more out of your trees.

Utah State University’s Davis County Extension will hold a budding class tomorrow, Aug. 5, from 10 a.m. to noon. The class teaches gardeners how to graft the bud of one tree onto another.

“It’s an excellent way to preserve heirloom fruit trees that don’t have a known variety name,” said Britney Hunter, a horticulture assistant professor at the extension.

Registration is $19 a person, and can be done online at usubcbudding.eventbrite.com. Each participant will be given two apple rootstocks and fruit scion wood to take home and practice the budding principles learned in class.

USU’s Davis County Extension is located at 80 E. Sego Lily Drive in Kaysville. For more information, call Mike Caron at 801-768-4919.
