Roses aren't just for Valentine's Day - they can bring color and sweet smells to your garden year round! Come attend this free seminar on selecting, planting and caring for roses in your garden. Following the presentation portion of the seminar, a hands-on demonstration of pruning roses in the Extension Demonstration Garden will take place. We will discuss site selection, soil amendments, and bed preparations plus showcase a number of Earth Kind Roses worthy of consideration in your garden. Earth Kind is a designation given to select roses by the Texas A&M Agriculture program, indicating the variety has been through rigorous testing and found to possess a high level of landscape performance and outstanding disease and insect tolerance/resistance. If you would like to participate in pruning, please bring pruning shears and garden gloves.
This seminar is free and open to the public. Space is limited so please call the Travis County Master Gardener's desk at (512) 854-9600 to reserve a spot. It is presented by the Travis County Master Gardeners Association, a volunteer arm of the Texas AgriLife Extension Service in Travis County. http://www.tcmastergardeners.org.
