Sustainable roses are sturdy, attractive plants that can hold their own in a pesticide-free landscape. This program features modern, recently-introduced varieties as well as old favorites that are disease-resistant, winter hardy, easy to grow and bloom all season. “Selecting Sustainable Roses” delves into the core of sustainability, explains the different grades and types of roses, their growth habits and how to select the best varieties for your garden. We use the experience gained in our own sustainable rose garden as a practical model. (We also include lots of tips on basic rose gardening.) You’ll be amazed at the wide choices of color, size and fragrance that are avaailable and will fit into any New England Garden. (Also available as two-hour seminar.)
We will be available to sign copies of our books Roses for New England: A Guide to Sustainable Rose Gardening and Rose Gardening Season by Season: A Journal for Passionate Gardeners, after the program.
