Rose Society to kick off pruning classes this weekend

WATSONVILLE—The Monterey Bay Rose Society (MBRS) will once again be holding its annual series of free rose pruning classes at various locations across the region.

Things kick off Saturday at 10:30am at the Display Rose Garden at the Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds, 2601 E. Lake Ave., Watsonville. Organizers recommend participants use the fairground’s Livestock entrance to park.

Sign up is not required. Participants should bring gloves, clippers, racks or any other equipment they might need. The hands-on classes will start with a demonstration by MBRS Master Rosarians, then break off into small groups for one-on-one instructions. 

Organizers will also offer informational handouts, and participants may have the chance to take home some rose cuttings. 

Another class will be held at the fairgrounds Sunday at 10:30am. More are scheduled throughout January and February at several different locations along the Monterey Bay: San Lorenzo Nursery in Santa Cruz (Jan. 15), Valley Hills Nursery Valley in Carmel Valley (Jan. 22), Alladin Nursery in Watsonville (Jan. 29 and Feb. 19), and Bokay Nursery in Salinas (Feb. 5).

Heavy rains will result in cancellation, as all classes are held outdoors. Current Covid-19 procedures will be followed.
