Alpharetta To Host Workshop On Pruning & Maintaining Shrubs & Roses

Released January 17, 2020 08:41 AM

The City of Alpharetta and the Alpharetta Natural Resources Commission, along with the UGA Cooperative Extension North Fulton Master Gardeners, will offer a workshop for homeowners on Wednesday, February 19, 2020 from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm.  The class will be held at the Alpharetta Department of Public Works, 1790 Hembree Road, Alpharetta, Georgia 30009.


Homeowners will soon begin pruning and fertilizing roses and shrubs to be prepared for our summer heat and possible lack of rain. If plants 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 the when, where and how and provide a hands-on demonstration on how to prune. And, it will provide a review of mulching, weed control, watering, fertilizing, and pest control for spring and summer.

This class is hosted by the City of Alpharetta and the Alpharetta Natural Resources Commission. Please register for this class on Eventbrite Shrubs and Roses registration  or call (678) 297-6213 by February 19, 2020.
