    Extreme Bed Building
    Speakers: Randy Keen & Mary Fulgham

January is the best time to build your beds so they can be ready for new bushes in the Spring. Randy Keen &Mary Fulgham will review their recent project of building a new large raised rose bed in the shape of the State of Texas. They will cover the minimum steps that are necessary to construct a bed and discuss the importance of site selection, rose soil preparation, planning of both roses and companion plants for your new bed, as well as, transplanting bushes from pots and other beds. We hope you can join us on January 9th at the Cherie Flores Pavillion.

Both Randy & Mary are ARS Master Consulting Rosarians. Mary is a Past President of the Houston Rose Society and currently serves as Co-Editor of The Rose-Ette newsletter. She is Section Violist for the Houston Ballet Orchestra. Mary and her husband Randy grow over 300 award winning roses at their Bellaire home, and have been active members of the Houston Rose Society since 1978. They, with their daughter, also hybridize roses and have won many awards for their seedlings!

If your roses are still blooming, bring a rose or roses in a vase to the meeting. “Grow and Tell” is your opportunity to tell us what you love about your roses. Refreshments and social time begin at 7:00, and the program starts at 7:30 pm. Consulting Rosarian of the Month is Master Consulting Rosarian Mary Fulgham.
