    Get Ready to Prune Your Roses

“Good riddance! It is time to get rid of those rose bushes that have served their purposes, but are now taking up spaces that are required for some new ones. We have a great way to give them new homes where they can thrive and give happiness to others. Our February meeting is always set aside for showing the best ways to prune rose bushes, and we do that on live plants dug up and brought to the meeting. Those are then pruned by experts in front of members, and given away to lucky ticket holders.

We need roses of all types, and ask that you bring a few from your garden. Simply dig them up, placing a sack over their roots, and tagging them with their names, and then bring them to the meeting on February 12 at 7:00 pm. Our experts are Earl Krause on Hybrid Teas and Grandifloras, Robin Hough on Floribundas, Liz Duhon on Miniatures, and Donald Burger on Climbers and Shrubs; and we’ll need some roses of each of those types, so get your shovels ready!”
