Saturday, February 17th 10:00 am – 3:00 pm
Everything’s Coming Up Roses! Seattle Rose Society

Roses are the very emblem of romance and beauty, and they perform brilliantly here in the mild climate of the Northwest when you meet their basic needs.

Join rosarians from the Seattle Rose Society for a full day of rose mania. An affiliate of the American Rose Society, the Seattle Rose Society has been promoting — and growing — roses here since 1913! 

Among other activities, the Rose Society helped plan the Woodland Park Zoo Rose Garden (now a nationally recognized site with over 300 varieties), and every June they hold a Rose Show in which local rosarians and amateurs can compete.

The Rose Society will hold four seminars on specific aspects of rose growing, and experts will be available to share their enthusiasm throughout the day. Come for one or more of the seminars, or come for the full day!

10 am - Rose Pruning- Roses require yearly pruning to perform their best. Fortunately, learning  the basics for different varieties (hybrid teas, shrubs, climbers, tree roses) is not difficult.

11 am - Rose Selection- Over a century’s experience goes into these top picks for the Northwest!

Noon - Break

1 pm - Planting, Mulching, Feeding, and Fertilizing Your Roses- Roses reward proper care with  lavish bloom! Learn how to get the most out of your plants.

2 pm - Disease Control- Proper siting, pruning, and care of your roses can prevent many common  problems. But if you have had problems with blackspot or mildew or other issues, let the region’s experts tell you the gentlest ways to address them.
