The Coronado Library invites you to bring your own pruners and gloves to our annual hands-on rose pruning workshop. Join us on Saturday, January 5th in front of the Coronado Public Library starting at 9:15am. We will start at the Harlow Rose Garden and finish with the Rosy the Riveter Roses at the Spreckels Center. You will learn how and why to prune your roses, what to feed your roses and how to manage pests and fungal diseases sustainably.
The free workshop will be headed by Rita Perwich, a Master Gardener and ARS Consulting Rosarian who has been sharing her expertise at the library for over eleven years. Rita chairs the Rose Section of the Coronado Flower Show. She also writes the monthly column “The Sustainable Rose Garden” for the San Diego Union-Tribune. Also assisting at the workshop are two other San Diego Master Gardeners, Maria Mata and Carvill Veech.
This workshop will teach you how to grow healthy roses with abundant blooms. You will be encouraged and receive tips on how to enter your roses in the annual Coronado Flower Show which will be held on April 13-14th, 2019.
