    Annual Pruning Party
    Featuring an All-Star Cast of Pruners

Join us this month for our Annual Pruning Party to watch Consulting Rosarians prune bushes that will be given away as door prizes! It is great time to ask questions and leave the meeting with new information along with a new rose bush.

Deanna and Earl Krause will demonstrate pruning for Miniature and Mini-Flora bushes. Mary Fulgham and Randy Keen will demonstrate Hybrid Teas while Debbie and James Laperouse will have Floribundas. Patti and Dan Lawlor will prune and answer questions on both climbers and old garden roses.

Members are encouraged to bring any healthy bushes from their yard to donate to a new home. Just dig up the bush with all the roots within a day or two of the meeting and bring it in a plastic bag.

Visitors are always welcomed at our meetings. If you have a neighbor or friend interested in growing roses, please bring them to this event. Raffle tickets will be distributed when you sign in at our Membership Table.

We are fortunate that several of our nursery partners are donating bushes for the program. We thank Enchanted Gardens, Plants for All Seasons. RCW Nursery, and The Arbor Gate for their continued support.

Refreshments and social time begin at 7:00 p.m. If you want to bring an appetizer to share, please bring finger foods. The meeting will be held at the Cherie Flores Pavilion, 1500 Hermann Drive, Houston, Texas 77004; with free parking in Lot C at Hermann Drive and Crawford Street.
