Description

THE COURSE

In the world of roses there are many different types and varieties, all of which require different pruning techniques. In this one-day workshop, Thomas Stone will describe each of the different types and how to tell them apart. He will also cover what cuts to use and why and, just as important, the tools used while pruning and how to look after them. We will then go outside and look at the roses in the garden at Sculpture by the Lakes and watch a practical demonstration on pruning.
