Rose Pruning Workshop - New Date and Location

Due to being rained out, the University of California Master Gardeners of Lake County have rescheduled and relocated their rose pruning workshop to Wednesday, January 30, 2013 beginning at 10:00 a.m. The new location is at 10011 Sam Alley Ridge Road in Upper Lake – weather permitting. If it is raining heavily on January 30, the workshop will be cancelled. Master Gardener Jim Harrell will discuss and demonstrate pruning and other cultural practices that help produce large, healthy rose displays. Although not a planned portion of the workshop, participants should bring heavy gloves and pruning shears in case hands-on practice is available. A $5 donation is encouraged to help defray expenses for handouts that will be available. The meeting site is not wheelchair accessible, call the UC Cooperative Extension at 263-6838 for special accommodations.

Please RSVP for this workshop by calling 263-6838. For directions to the workshop site, please call 263-6838.
