Workshop Description

Seed catalogs are starting to offer dozens of rootstocks that impart soil disease resistance and improved plant vigor to tomato plants. This workshop will describe the surgical process for placing your favorite tomato scion on one of these emerging rootstocks, a home-scale "recovery room," as well as how to decide whether the benefits of grafting are worth the trouble.
