Rose-pruning tips offered at Work to Learn party

SEQUIM — Rose pruning will be the topic of the Work to Learn demonstration at 1 p.m. Saturday.

Lee Bowen, Sequim Botanical Garden Society vice president and 26-year botanical gardener, will show “Pruning the Golden Celebration Roses” at the Sequim Botanical Garden in Carrie Blake Community Park just north of the band shell, 350 N. Blake Ave.

After the free rose demonstration, visitors will hear about how to support the garden in other ways besides trimming and weeding.

A guided tour of the garden is planned and information about volunteer opportunities will be available.

These Work to Learn parties, group members have said, are an opportunity for novice and seasoned gardeners to volunteer together.

Participants don’t have to get in the dirt to learn, but those who want to help are asked to bring gardening gloves, tools, sunscreen and hats.

The Sequim Botanical Garden Society (SBGS) is a volunteer partner with the city of Sequim and a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides educational information and a visual demonstration of what can be done in home gardening with research-based horticultural practices at the group’s garden.

For more information, contact SBGS president Dona Brock at [email protected] or 360-460-8865.

Find SBGS on Facebook at fb.me/Sequim BotanicalGarden or visit SequimBotanical Garden.org.
