Learn how to safely and properly care for roses at South Suburban Parks and Recreation’s (SSPR) free annual rose pruning workshop led by its professional horticulturist and rosarians, along with area master gardeners and members of the Denver Rose Society.
The valuable hands-on training event is Saturday, May 4, from 8 a.m. – 12 p.m. at South Suburban’s War Memorial Rose Garden, 5804 South Bemis Street, across from Sterne Park. The War Memorial Rose Garden is dedicated to veterans who have served in America’s wars. The garden features more than 2,000 varieties of roses. What better place to learn how to care for our national flower?
All you need to bring is a sharp pair of bypass pruning shears and leather gloves. Knee pads are also helpful. A limited number of shears will be available to borrow. Enjoy light refreshments and an opportunity to win some fabulous gardening-themed door prizes. In case of inclement weather, the alternate date will be Saturday, May 11.
