Master Gardeners Present: Raising Roses in the Foothills - Sat Jan 26

Roses are a popular choice for local home landscapes and gardens. If you have questions about which ones to choose, propagation techniques and how to successfully care for these colorful ornamentals, plan on attending the UCCE Master Gardeners of Amador County Public Education class “Raising Roses in the Foothills” on Saturday, January 26, 2019.

Master Gardeners at this class will present detailed information about the most popular types of roses which can be grown in a landscape or garden setting in Amador County and how to propagate a rose from a growing tip.  Best practices for maintenance of your roses, throughout the year, including planting, irrigating, fertilizing, and pruning will be covered as well as managing common rose diseases and pests with IPM, (Integrated Pest Management) strategies. The class will also feature an update on the Heritage Rose Garden, a Master Gardener project in progress at the Amador Community Garden. Handouts will be available.

The class is free and open to the public. No reservations are required. All classes are held in the GSA building at 12200-B Airport Rd. in Jackson from 9am to Noon.
