September – Let’s Learn about

Rose Hybridization

Tuesday, September 19, 2017 7:00 p.m.

Adult Building, First Baptist Church, 3500 Walton Way, Augusta, GA.

Our September program features the hybridization program of AURS member, Clark Boyd. An Aiken optometrist, Clark was
mentored in rose growing 25 years ago by AURS members Joe and Pauline Partain. This year, out of curiosity, he has experimented with hybridizing roses. He will share what he has learned about: choosing potential rose parents; how to collect pollen from the pollen parent; how to prepare and pollinate the seed parent, and what to expect in the progeny. Hip development, hip harvesting, and seed processing for cold stratification will also be discussed.

Come hear Clark and bring a friend!
