In Western North Carolina, roses are pruned in the early spring, traditionally when the forsythia blooms. It’s the time to remove unwanted or unhealthy canes, reduce size, and shape the rose for optimal growth and health.
We will start in the classroom with a discussion about the proper tools for pruning and tips on how to prune. You will have an opportunity to sharpen your pruners. Afterwards, weather permitting, we will move to the Learning Rose Garden to do some pruning. Please bring garden gloves and pruners, and dress appropriately for the weather.
The talk is free, but seating is limited and registration is required. Please click on the link below to register. If you encounter problems registering or if you have questions, call 828-255-5522.
