Event

Rose Pruning Techniques
Join Tom Carruth, Ruth B. and E. L. Shannon Curator of the Rose Collection, for this instructive workshop which will take the mystery out of rose pruning. Students will learn about tools and technique as they observe demonstrations in the Huntington rose garden. Participants are encouraged to bring their gloves, sheers, and loppers for some potential hands-on experience in the garden.

The Rose Garden was originally created in 1908 for the private enjoyment of Henry and Arabella Huntington. Roses were a particular favorite flower of Arabella's. The garden was designed primarily for display, providing copious quantities of cut blooms for the large elaborate floral arrangements favored in their home. Household records indicate that in one year alone more than 30,000 flowers were used in these massive bouquets, 9,700 of which were roses. The three-acre garden has gone through many transformations since the Huntingtons' time. It now contains more than 3,000 individual plants and more than 1,200 different cultivated varieties (cultivars).
