Spring Care of Roses
Roger Haynes, Brookside Gardens Staff
Late winter is the time to tend to roses, especially hybrid tea roses. As the first flush of growth appears, it’s time to plant new shrubs or to prune those you planted in previous seasons. See how to attend to these gardening projects, demonstrated outdoors in Brookside’s Rose Garden. Soil preparation, fertilization, disease prevention and maintenance tips will be discussed.
