    Live Rose Pruning Demo

February 14 is the date designated to prune roses in this area. Our February meeting demonstrates pruning techniques on various types of roses to get you ready or refresh your pruning techniques. Come see and learn how to prune for best plant growth and bloom production from the following rose experts:

Hybrid Teas Robin Hough
Floribundas Mary Fulgham
Miniatures & Mini Floras Deanna Krause
Old Garden Roses & Climbers Donald Burger

These Master Rosarians will show you how to assess the shrub to know where to make the cuts, how much to prune, what equipment to use and answer your questions.

You can help us by bringing a rose bush that you would like to donate from your garden. Once dug up, wrap the roots in plastic (add a little soil if needed), water lightly and wrap up. Be sure to label the bush with the name of the rose. Bring your roses to the Cherie Flores Pavilion by 7 pm so that we can have them placed by the meeting time.

Bring a friend with you to this meeting. Everyone will receive a ticket for the drawing of all the bushes that are pruned.
