Petals & Pruning; A Rose Gardeners Gathering Workshop

Stop and smell the roses.

Well you won’t smell then in July, but we will prepare to have the BEST roses around come spring.

We will have a rose care morning telling you about the soil they love, how to feed them as well as pruning, moving and problems you may experience.

You can get some roses for your garden and I will also tell you which are the best roses to design with and that I use on the farm for events and for bunches.

Arina Duvenage from Garden of Eden Garden School, will give pro organic tips that we use in our garden.

 

We will also enjoy some lovely bakes in the garden with of course our fav champy, because what is gardening if we don’t celebrate our achievements?

Incl

Refreshments

A rose care booklet

One of my favourite rose varieties to take home.
