JOIN US FOR THE
MARCH MEETING

MONDAY MARCH 11, 2019
7:00 P.M.

SAN ANTONIO GARDEN CENTER
3310 North New Braunfels
San Antonio, Texas

 

PROGRAM:   “Pests and Diseases on Roses”

At this time, your roses should be all pruned for the spring season; you should be seeing some new, virgin growth coming on.  Our job now is to protect the new growth – keep it healthy and green.  With the onset of spring, new growth on our roses, and a somewhat unpredictable weather  pattern, we can pretty well expect an onslaught of diseases and pests in the garden. Holly Hodgins, a Consulting Rosarian and an ARS certified Rose Show Judge (Horticulture), will identify the pests and diseases to be on the lookout for, and recommend effective cures that we can use to maintain a healthy garden. 

Come prepared to take notes
and take home vital information
to keep a clean garden.


NEW ROSES NOW AVAILABLE ~ GO SHOPPING!!

New roses for 2019 are already out at most nurseries in San Antonio.  We would encourage you to shop early to get the “early pick” of plants being offered.  The roses that are out now should be in bloom by mid-April.  Those that have been “container grown” will be in bloom much earlier.

We encourage you to shop at nurseries that have faithfully been our Rose Society Sponsors:

Milberger’s Nursery, both Rainbow Gardens, The Garden Center Nursery, and Fanick’s Garden Center.

We will have a team of volunteer rosarians at these nurseries on the dates shown in our calendar on page 8, to discuss growing roses in San Antonio, answer questions and otherwise assist customers in the rose area..

When you shop, let them know that you are in the Rose Society,
and that we appreciate their support.
