Great Roses Start with Great Soil … and other plants too

February 9 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Come join us for our First Program and meeting of 2023……

Roses like a great beginning, as do most new plants that go into landscapes during the outdoor growing season. Learning more about your soil and what to do to enhance it for successful rose growing is important to know for beginning to long time gardeners. Afterall, good soil properties holds most of the keys for success in any growing season.

Betty will cover the ABCs of soil properties in the Denver area, along with how to improve soil conditions for optimal growth and success of your roses. She’ll also cover early to late season tips on how to keep your roses blooming and happy. And a bonus part of the program will be busting some of the most popular soil myths and practices. Some may actually be true, you’ll have to attend to find out!

Come to this fun and lively meeting with Betty to learn about soil management along with greeting other members after a long winter break and meeting new folks too.  All are welcome to attend in the beautiful Freyer-Newman Center at Denver Botanic Gardens.
