Rain or shine! Bring your sheers and gloves and join us for our Annual Pruning Demonstrations. This is our Society's biggest fundraiser of the year. There is no charge to attend but donations are encouraged.
Our Master Rosarians will show you how to properly prune your roses and give helpful tips and advice on winter rose care and recommendations on the best type of tools and supplies required for pruning safely and accurately.
Important items for your pruning tool list: Thick gloves, pruning shears, long handled loppers, a curved pruning saw (folding type is handy), sharpener, small rake, bucket for debris, a small jar of pine oil cleaner for dipping tools after cutting each plant, and rags to wipe dirt off blades.
Outdoor, hands-on pruning demonstrations; dress accordingly.
Everyone can help, pruning, raking, moving debris and greeting guests! If you’re not comfortable with pruning, help cutting up canes to smaller sizes for the green bins (make it fit better), raking up leaves and general garden clean up. Refreshments and coffee will be served.
Pruning demonstrations are done in our rose garden at the Luther Burbank Art & Garden Center at 2050 Yulupa Ave, Santa Rosa, CA 95404
