Beautiful spring roses start in the cold of winter

Winter is the best time to prune roses. To learn the proper techniques, attend a free rose pruning seminar from 9:30 to 11 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 11, presented by the Woodland Library Rose Club.

The event will begin in the Leake Room at the Woodland Public Library, 250 First St., with additional demonstrations in the garden to follow.

Local experts will demonstrate the key pruning techniques that produce stronger plants and healthier blooms; what pruning cuts to avoid; and tips on how to prune different rose varieties.

Attendees will receive free handouts on rose pruning and winter care as well as a rose gardener’s calendar. Following the talk, the outdoor pruning demonstration will focus on a variety of rose types on the library grounds and how pruning those roses vary.

In addition to the hands-on demonstration, attendees who bring small pruning tools can practice pruning with the support of Rose Club members. Refreshments will be served.

“The pruning seminar is the highlight of our public education programs,” says Laurette Ferrier, club president. “Having the seminar and providing a hands-on experience in the garden with experienced gardeners takes the guesswork out of winter pruning.”

For more information about the seminar, visit www.cityofwoodland.org/wlrc.
