rose prunning

It may be cold outside, but your roses are waking up and getting ready for spring buds and blooms. That means it is time for pruning and helping your plants put on their best color in a few weeks.

Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, El Paso County Master Gardeners, and the El Paso Rose Society in cooperation with the City of El Paso Parks and Recreation Department will present a rose pruning demonstration for the public to take the mystery out of pruning. The demonstration will be at the Municipal Rose Garden, 1702 N. Copia (Copia and Aurora) on Saturday, January 27th, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Master Gardeners will demonstrate pruning techniques for hybrid teas, grandiflora, floribunda and other rose varieties. Information on rose care and maintenance will be available along with the demonstrations.

The Rose Garden is closed for the winter season while Master Gardeners and other Rose Garden volunteers ready the 1,600+ roses for spring bloom. The garden will open to the public on March 1 with peak blooming expected in April.

For information on the pruning demonstrations, please call the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension office at 915-771-2354.
