Our Next Meeting...

How To Tuck Your Roses In For A Long Winter’s Nap!

Tuesday, November 18, 2014 7:00 p.m.

Room 105, Adult Building, First Baptist Church, 3500 Walton Way, Augusta, GA.

Brrr...it’s starting to feel like winter!  The chill of recent days raises an important question; namely, what is the correct procedure needed to put our roses to bed for the long winter ahead?  Winters here are often considered mild; will our roses become dormant?  Do we need to protect them; if so, how?  What about roses grown in pots; should we bring them indoors?  Are some types of roses more prone to damage from cold temperatures than others?  Our panel of Consulting Rosarians and Experienced Growers will explore this topic in detail.  Their discussion will be even more meaningful if we come prepared to share our experiences with rose survival during cold weather.  So, bring your questions and ideas to the November meeting; you will no doubt depart with a much greater knowledge of preparing your roses for the upcoming winter!

And, don’t forget, we will be gathering at the Village Deli for dinner at 5:00 p.m. prior to the meeting...
