Hack Your Fruit Trees: The Science & Technique of Grafting
Most fruit tree species don’t “grow true to seed”. Clonal propagation gets around that and that’s why the majority of trees you see in a nursery are grafted.
Learn the principles of grafting technique, why you’d want to use them in your garden, and what the heck those plant cells are up to from a gardener and a molecular biologist.
Megan Lynch is a member of TheLab as well as a member of California Rare Fruit Growers. She has years of experience with fruiting trees.
Dr. Cory Tobin is president of TheLab. He has a Ph. D. in Biology / Plant Genetics from Caltech and a Bachelors in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology from California Lutheran University.
