Every Rose Has Its Thorns and Blooms! Navigating the Highs (and Lows) of Rose Growing
Roses can be finicky, but persistence pays off! This class will be a lively, 3-dimensional primer on growing roses in the home garden. Appropriate whether you have (or are planning to have) 1, 10, or 100 roses, for while scale matters, the basics are the same.

Workshop topics:
 Site/soil planning factors
Selecting roses: types and varieties and their features, including David Austins, Hybrid teas, Floribundas, Grandifloras, and Rugosas
 Getting started in the garden: Soil prep and planting, post-planting care, and initial pruning
 The yearly care cycle: an almanac of rose care throughout the calendar year: what do and when to do it
 Pests and diseases: strategies and trouble shooting
 Fertilizer overview and timing of applications
 DIY: propagating roses from cuttings
