We’ll take a walk and visit some of the special trees planted in our garden while Anton Roux shares some of their stories. One of these is the medlar that was grafted on quince, as well as our fruit trees grafted on special rootstocks.

Grafting is a very old technique – often our grandparents grafted trees so they could have different types of fruit growing on the same tree. The more modern technique of budding is such an easy skill that anyone can master it. With a bit of practice and a few special tricks up your sleeve, you will soon be growing all kinds of interesting combinations.

Put a day aside and join our garden team to get to know the different techniques and try your hand at some of the basics!

Lunch will be served at the Greenhouse Restaurant and is included in the price. For hotel guests, the workshop is included in your stay.
