The 2012 RI Flower Show runs from Thursday Feb 23 to Sunday Feb 26. Mike and I will be there on opening day, Thursday February 23, to present our new PowerPoint program “Anatomy of a Sustainable Rose Garden” at 1:00 PM.
“Anatomy of a Sustainable Rose Garden” explains how to build a rose garden from scratch. This seminar provides a practical blueprint for anyone to start rose gardening. It includes everything from the value of water and nutrients to proper soil to selecting the right rose varieties as well as suggestions for companion plants. We’ll also sign copies of our book, Roses for New England: A Guide to Sustainable Rose Gardening.
We’ll be back on Friday February 24 and Sunday February 26 at 11:30 when Mike and I will present a demonstration, “How to Grow Roses,” as representatives of the Rhode Island Rose Society. This demo will focus on rose gardening basics such as proper planting, pruning, fertilizing, insect and disease control and plant selection. It also includes a hand-out as well as practical rose gardening tips.
