Saturday, January 13, 2018 - The Historic Rose Garden at the Sacramento Historic City Cemetery will again host Stephen Scanniello, a Great Rosarian of the World, president of the Heritage Rose Foundation and curator of the Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden, for two pruning workshops. This is a chance to learn from an expert and to be regaled with many entertaining tales of roses and the people who grow them. The first, at 9 am, will focus on pruning climbing roses. The second, at 1 pm, will show techniques for pruning and rehabilitating mature plants. While our workshops are usually free, we would appreciate a minimum of $10 donation to be shared between the Heritage Rose Foundation and for expenses in the Historic Rose Garden. 1000 Broadway, Sacramento, CA 95818 (916) 448-0811
