Master Rosarian, or cultivator of roses, Walt Reed will speak to the South Metro Rose Society this month about soil preparation and the proper techniques for planting new roses either in the ground or in raised beds.
Reed is a past president of the group and also a horticulture judge who will explain why proper planting is key to growing quality roses.
As usual, master and consulting rosarians will be available to answer questions on any rose topic. Both novice and experts are invited to attend the meeting on Monday, Jan. 26, at 6:30 p.m. at the Heritage Bank at 440 N. Jeff Davis Drive in Fayetteville.
