    President - Southern CA Horticultural Society,
    Pacific Horticultural Society

    Registration is required. Please register via e-mail at:botanicgarden@csun.edu
    Registration for this class opens December 16, 2015.

    Properly pruned roses are more disease-resistant, grow better, require less maintenance, and bloom better. So what's the big mystery about rose pruning?

    Popular lecturer and landscape designer Steve Gerischer will de-thorn the prickly topic of rose pruning with a hands-on workshop on Saturday, January 16, 2016, from 10-noon. The class will begin with a brief introduction to the 'why', 'when', and 'how' of rose pruning. Participants will then have the opportunity to put theory into practice when the class goes outdoors to prune some of the campus roses.

    Gerischer, proprietor of Larkspur Garden Design, 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 Gardens, and Fullerton Arboretum, as well as putting in an occasional appearance on HGTV, most notably on "Landscaper's Challenge."

    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.
