Weather worries cause date change for annual rose pruning clinic


The South Metro Rose Society has rescheduled its annual Community Rose Pruning Clinic to March 14 because of weather concerns.

The clinic will begin at 10 a.m. at the rose garden in front of Heritage Bank, 440 N. Jeff Davis Dr. in Fayetteville. If it rains, the clinic will be held March 15 at 1 p.m. in the same location.

Members of the community are invited to attend at no charge. They will gain valuable hands-on experience in rose pruning as well as answers to any rose growing questions from society members.

Participants are asked to bring their own sturdy garden gloves and pruners if possible.

South Metro Rose Society, affiliated with the American Rose Society, meets on the fourth Monday of the months January through April and August through October at 6:30 p.m. at the Heritage Bank. All rose enthusiasts, especially novices, are invited to visit the meetings at no charge. For more information call 770-631-3885.
