About the event

Learn to take cuttings and air layerings of Shimpaku junipers. We will look at previous cuttings and layerings taken in 2023 and 2022. There will also be a demonstration of approach grafting. Finally, there will be a bonus opportunity to view approximately 20 suiseki, both from Japan and collected in Colorado.

Darrell Whitley has taken Shimpaku cuttings for 13 years and successful layerings for 4 years (it's easy!). He has been working on approach grafting for junipers for 4 years, but has used approach grafting for Ficus in the past. Approach grafts on junipers take time to fuse.

The workshop will be in Fort Collins, just off I-25 at the Mountain Vista exit. Darrell has about 10 Shimpaku cuttings to give away! Please bring an empty 1 gallon container with some soil mix if you are interested. While supplies last, or by lottery.

Address: 1908 Rangeview Dr Fort Collins, CO 80524 RSVP to  darrell.whitley@gmail.com and include RMBS in the subject
