CANCELLED Due to Rain...Again. Learn How to Prune Historic Roses

Heritage Rose Garden at the Stagecoach Inn Museum; May 2006

Heritage Rose Garden at the Stagecoach Inn Museum; May 2006

We’ll try one more time to fit a rose pruning demonstration in-between rainstorms! Call the museum to make sure we’re able to meet on March 2nd.

Rose lovers (you know you’re crazy about roses!!) are invited to join us in the Museum’s Heritage Rose Garden for a demonstration and workshop on how to prune Old Garden Roses and shrub roses.

Jeri and Clay Jennings, Camarillo-based rosarians, have grown Old Garden Roses since 1987. Along the way, through trial and error and with the help of others, they've learned a lot about what works (and what does not work) in our mild climate.

Jeri designed the Stagecoach Inn Museum's Heritage Rose Garden, and they helped to plant the garden in 1994. Jeri and Clay will discuss, demonstrate, and help to prune this lovely mature garden.

Jeri and Clay are respectively the National Convener and the Membership Chairman of the national Heritage Roses Group.
