Lincoln County Master Gardener Association presents its second Gardener’s Roundtable Session entitled Everything’s Coming Up Roses on Thursday, February 8 from 10am to 12pm in the Community Room, Oregon Coast Community College in South Beach.
If you’ve been afraid to start your own rose garden because you’ve heard that growing the “queen of flowers” can be a thorny endeavor, don’t be daunted by false rumors. “The truth is, roses are no more temperamental than other flowering shrubs,” says Kathryn Johnson, past president of the Portland Rose Society and 2017 Oregon State Master Gardener of the Year. Kathryn knows roses and is committed to teaching and helping people add roses to their personal gardens. Kathryn will discuss how to select, plant, fertilize, water, and care for roses. Whether you are a beginning rose gardener or someone with lots of experience, join us for a stimulating discussion of all things roses
