Join GARS president Christopher Huffer at the Carter Center Presidential Rose Garden as he leads another pruning day in the rose gardens. Maintenance of the gardens at this time of year is essential, and our focus will be pruning, cutting back the plants, and removing deadwood.There are approximately 180 roses on the property with Climbers, Hybrid Teas, Floribundas, Grandifloras, Polyanthas, and English roses being represented. This is an educational event open to the public. Anyone interested in learning how to correctly prune roses to promote healthy growth is encouraged to attend. Certified Consulting Rosarians will be present to teach as well as discuss fertilizers, watering, disease and insect control, types of roses, and selecting and planting roses. Bring garden gloves and pruners. Refreshments will be served.
We will meet outside of the visitor’s center at 9 AM, and the Carter Center gardening staff will bring us into the rose garden. The event will last from 9-12.
