Annual rose pruning class coming up

Posted by: Rebecca Whitham, Communications

If you enjoy the beauty of the Woodland Park Rose Garden, here’s your chance to get the secrets of this garden…

Check out the free rose pruning demonstration at the garden this Saturday, February 27, from noon to 3:00 p.m. Hosted by the Seattle Rose Society, the demonstration will include many annual rose pruning practices such as where to cut, how much to cut, how to use your tools properly, and respective pruning techniques for different types of roses.

We’ll also be on hand to discuss Woodland Park Zoo’s organic management and integrated pest management techniques used in the Rose Garden.

The Rose Garden is free to visit year round and located near the zoo’s South Entrance at N. 50th Street and Fremont Ave. N. Get info on hours and parking on our website.

There's always something great about the beautiful Woodland Park Zoo. They have some of the best exhibits in any USA zoo, plus lots for kids. I love going to this zoo.
