Pruning roses can be a thorny problem. Learn how to safely and properly care for roses by joining us for a free rose pruning workshop lead by our horticulturist, Larry Hurd, along with area master gardeners and members of the Denver Rose Society.

This hands-on training event is Saturday, April 25, from 8 am- 12 pm at the South Suburban War Memorial Rose Garden, located across the street from Sterne Park. The garden is one of only two All-America Rose Select designations in Colorado. The garden features more than 1800 varieties of roses. What better place to learn how to care for our national flower?

All you'll need to bring is a sharp pair of bypass pruning shears and leather gloves.  Knee pads are helpful. Light refreshments will be served as well as an opportunity to win gardening themed door prizes.

To register for the workshop, contact Larry at 303.721.8478 or larryh@ssprd.org.

In case of inclement weather, the alternate date is May 2.
