CANCELED – Hands-on Spring Rose Care Workshops

All Spring Rose Care Workshops have been canceled or postponed until the state lifts its “stay at home” directive.

Be safe and give your own roses some tender loving care. For information, there are several articles and a video on pruning roses on the Pruning page of the website. If you have further questions, please use the Ask a Consulting Rosarian contact form.
