Spring Rose Pruning Demo
9 am-12 pm
Meet in the Rose Garden at Point Defiance Park
Consulting rosarians from the Tacoma Rose Society and Metro Parks staff will demonstrate rose-pruning techniques and share information on how to care for roses and get them ready for the growing season from 9 am to noon at the Point Defiance Rose Garden.
Guests will be able to observe various rose-pruning and care techniques up-close, and try their hand at pruning in the garden.
Participants should bring a notepad and pen, rose gardening implements from home to try out (pruners, gloves, etc.), and weather-appropriate attire, since the demonstration will be held outside, regardless of the weather. The demonstration is free of charge.
Enter through the main park gate at the end of Pearl Street and look for the large wooden gazebo on the left beyond the pond.
