    Rose Hybridization: Just Do It!
    Featuring John Jons

Our January speaker is HRS member, John Jons. John is both a Consulting Rosarian and a Master Gardener.

For the last ten years he has been on a quest to produce a hardy show quality hybrid tea rose. John has grown roses from seeds and he has tried his hand at grafting roses. He has a decade of experience and he will be sharing it with us during his talk.

John is a great story teller as you can tell from his article in the January issue of The Rose-Ette. You will be entertained as he takes you through his adventures of growing roses by planting seeds and his quest for a care-free hybrid tea that can win Queen of Show.

Donít miss this wonderful voyage of discovery!

Consulting Rosarian: Maria Trevino is the consulting rosarian for January. Bring her your questions. Membership Dues for 2017 are due.
