    Rose Pruning Workshop
    Saturday, January 13th, 9 - 11 a.m.
    Steve Gerischer, Larkspur Garden Design

  • Registration is required. Please register via e-mail at: botanicgarden@csun.edu

    Steve Gerischer, proprietor of Larkspur Garden Design, will address the prickly topic of rose pruning and how to keep your roses flourishing. After a brief introduction to the 'why', 'when', and 'how' of rose pruning, attendees will have the opportunity to hone their pruning technique when the class goes outdoors to prune a nearby rosebed. "This class will be a little different from previous workshops we've held," said Brenda Kanno, manager of the CSUN Botanic Garden. "This is a young collections of roses, planted just 2 years ago, and their annual maintenance will have a slightly different focus."

    Participants are encouraged to bring a brimmed hat, sturdy gloves, and hand pruners so they can practice their rose pruning technique. Note: If heavy rain occurs, the program will be limited to the classroom portion of the workshop.

    Gerischer lectures on a wide variety of horticultural topics. His busy schedule includes serving as president of the Southern California Horticultural Society and the Pacific Horticultural Society, teaching classes at the Los Angeles County Arboretum, Descanso Garden, and Fullerton Arboretum, as well as putting in an occasional appearance on HGTV, most notably on "Landscaper's Challenge."

  • Registration for the free class is required. Please E-mail botanicgarden@csun.edu to request a space in the class or for more information. Driving and parking instructions, as well as the class meeting location, will be sent upon registration.
