Nut Culture & Pecan Grafting Class

Come learn about nut crops you can grow for fun and profit

We can grow several nut crops in the Cullman area including pecans, Chinese chestnuts, black walnuts and even newly developed American chestnuts. Come hear from Regional Extension Agent, Doug Chapman who will also be demonstrating how to graft pecan trees. Tony Glover, County Agent Coordinator and Cullman Master Gardener, Don Nelson will be giving a short update on the American Chestnut and its reintroduction into our forest and how you can be involved.

This is a free event but we would appreciate you pre-registering by emailing or calling the Cullman County Extension office. We will sell the grafted pecans at the end of the class time for $10 each. Doug Chapman is an excellent grafter but he cannot guarantee the graft will be successful but at the very least you will have a nice seedling you can try grafting yourself next year. If the graft is successful you will have a good variety that should perform well in our area.
