FIRST "HANDS ON" ROSE CLASS OF 2019 - PRUNING


HAPPY NEW ROSE YEAR!

 Port Sunlight


WHAT:  
Are you dreaming of “loads” of fragrant roses?  We do too!  


Dainty Bess & Others

Or do you dream of a single rose in a bud vase to put on your night stand?  We do too!  





We’d like to help you make those dreams come true.  
It’s January and in the Sonoran Desert that means rose pruning time.  
The first in our “hands on” rose class series for 2019 is Pruning!   






Join us to Lunch & Learn, Rose Style.  You bring your lunch and we’ll help you learn. 
We’ll demonstrate and then let you practice on actual rose bushes growing in raised beds. 






WHO:  
If you have roses and want to learn or improve your rose pruning skills join us.  
If you don’t have rose bushes, yet!, you too are welcome to come get a jump start on how to care for the rose bushes in your future.  
Join us, Jill of @sweetlifegarden and Anne of @anne_es_garden_fresh.  



Jude the Obscure


WHEN & WHERE:  
We’ll greet you at the Gardens at Tre Soli in South Scottsdale 
on 
Thursday, January 17 from 12 noon to 2 p.m. 
to walk you back to the gardens (you must be on time before the gate closes).  



Munstead Woods




HOW:  
We will be outside on uneven mulched surfaces the entire two hours.   
For your safety you need to wear closed toe shoes, long pants & bring plenty of water.  
Even in January a hat or sunscreen wouldn’t hurt.  





Roses have prickles (not thorns) and they Can hurt.  
If you are new to pruning we recommend wearing protective gloves until you figure out what’s right for you.  
Most nurseries carry appropriate gloves, the trick is finding them in your size so that you can move your fingers freely.  
You need not bring pruners; you will be using ours.  



Betty White


We’ll also provide some take homes - gardening publications, rose journal & after lunch nibbles.  
All this for $40, due when you arrive for class.







Since our classes are “hands on” registrants are very limited in number because we want to give you individual attention.  
To register for this opportunity you must send your email address to Anne at the email address listed in this profile 
or 
in the profile on Instagram @anne_es_garden_fresh.  



Bolero (in Winter)



When you register we’ll answer your questions 
and 
send you a confirmation email with location and directions.

HOT! HOT! HOT!


David Austin's Munstead Wood Rose


Valley of the Sun how perfect is today?!
 70 to 75° is the roses favorite! 
 With the 35% humidity they are slowly releasing their scents as well. 
Today is predicted to be much like yesterday,

Cool.

Edible White and Blue Violets with Blue Pansies


By Sunday...not so much. 

Predicted high of 105°.

We have dozens of fragrant roses now.
 Sombrueil
Best scented front door we've ever stepped up to.  Don't take our word for it.  Just ask the pizza delivery man who loved how fragrant alcove is.  He even mentioned the "vanilla notes" of the jasmine in bloom by the front door                
(his words, not ours).

Star Jasmine by Front Door Honor Market


but perhaps not by Sunday.
So come by the Front Door Honor Market today while the weather is still so perfect.  Come by with your buckets & bottles. 
We'll be out in the "East 40" harvesting so ring bell if you need assistance.
When the heat hits on Saturday (101° predicted) it will be more pleasant when you retreat inside with a bloom in every room.

Please remember this is a residential neighborhood without sidewalks.

Observe the speed limit!

Do not drive distracted!
