We are very excited to have two great programs this year, along with an extended break time to visit the educational tables to visit with Consulting Rosarians about rose care including planting, fertilizing, pruning and more.
The keynote speaker this year will be Carol O’Meara, Colorado State University Entomologist with a presentation on how to care for our rose gardens with the arrival of Japanese beetles.
Tammy Jansen, expert rose grower and DRS member will be doing a program – “Practically Perfect: Ideal Roses for YOUR Garden and their Secrets for Success.” Both programs are not to be missed!
This is a great time to pick up your Mile-Hi Rose Feed and check out the other sale items including bare-root roses from Bailey Nurseries, $20/each, see below for the list of roses. and a table with scores of previous owned garden books and other gently used treasures. Proceeds from Denver Rose Society events support rose educational outreach programs. We thank you!
