Alpharetta Hosts Workshop On Shrubs & Roses

Released May 02, 2017 03:45 PM

Alpharetta’s sixth class in the “gardening” series with the UGA Cooperative Extension North Fulton Master Gardeners is “Maintaining and Pruning Shrubs and Roses”. This free class will be presented on Wednesday, May 17, 2017 from 7:00 PM until 8:30 PM at the Mansell House in Wills Park, which is located at 1835 Old Milton Parkway in Alpharetta. Seating is limited and pre-registration is encouraged. This program is brought to you by the City of Alpharetta and the Alpharetta Natural Resources Commission.

While many of your shrubs may have already flowered (and others, like roses, will bloom later), they all need to be prepared for Atlanta’s summer heat and possible lack of rain.  If they have grown too large for their location, they may need to be pruned, at the right time and done the right way. This class will cover mulching, weed control, watering, fertilizing, pest control and pruning (where, when and how).
