Alan Chadwick Garden
Santa Cruz, CA
Share this event:

Roses are a celebration! In our climate, they can offer you almost year round beauty and flowersin the garden and as cut flowers in a vase for the house. And, while roses are one of the most popular plantings in the home garden, they can be challenging; challenging, but doable. FEAR NOT, help is on the way!

Workshop instructor Orin Martin, manager of the Alan Chadwick Garden at UCSC, will go over site selection/soil improvement, selecting rose varieties, fertilizing, pest and disease control, the yearly growth cycle and attendant care. The workshop will also feature a demo on winter pruning and planting bare root roses, plus how to take cuttings and propagate your own roses.

The focus will be on modern bush roses (hybrid teas/grandifloras/floribundas) plus the stunning David Austin roses, but heirloom and climbing roses will be covered as well.
