The Santa Clarita Valley Rose Society is hosting their 18th annual free Rose Care Seminar on Sunday, Jan. 8 at 2:30 p.m. at the SCV Senior Center in Newhall.
The seminar will feature Master Rosarians Bob Belendez, Kitty Belendez and Steve Jones, who will demonstrate how to properly prune various types of roses.
The Master Rosarians will also explain how to plant bareroot roses, how to rejuvenate roses grown in containers and how to fertilize and mulch. Participants will be rewarded with beautiful blooms after practicing the techniques shared on their own roses.
The club will also have a door prize, rose raffle and refreshments after the seminar. There is no cost to attend and the public is invited.
New members who join the Rose Society (annual dues are $20 per family) will receive a year’s subscription to the club’s award-winning newsletter, “Rose Ecstasy” and a 10 percent annual discount card good at Green Thumb Nursery.
