Ann Bartlett, Master Gardener since 2009, comments, "Roses are woody perennial flowering plant of the genus Rosa. There are over three hundred species and thousands of cultivars forming a group of plants that range in size from compact shrubs to climbers and trailers with stems that are often armed with sharp prickles. Rose flowers vary in size and shape and are usually large and showy, in colors ranging from white through yellows and reds. Roses of all varieties are widely grown for their beauty and fragrance. Throughout history, Roses have acquired cultural significance in many societies and have been widely celebrated in art and literature. Spring is the perfect time to begin the care needed for Roses to bloom to their best advantage." An experienced "rosarian," Ann Bartlett, has successfully grown a beautiful collection of different varieties in her garden. Her presentation will cover the basics of rose care: soil preparation, pruning, fertilizing, overwintering protection, as well as controlling pests through environmentally safe alternatives to toxic sprays. A highlight will be a slide show on disease resistant rose cultivars. Come and learn from an expert how to care for these special and beloved plants.
