Not til September 17, but...
POINT DEFIANCE ROSE
Margaret Leisner, Master Rosarian
Join us for deadheading at the
Pt. Defiance Park
The “deadheaders” will be out in
force beginning THURSDAY, JUNE 25 and continuing
each Thursday thereafter, through and including
THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 10th. The time is 4:00 p.m. to
6:00 p.m. or until finished.
If you have not yet joined us in
this community project before, how about making 2015
the year that you do. Just follow these simple
1. Come to the garden around 4:00
p.m. any Thursday during the above dates; there is
plenty of parking next to the garden.
2. Bring sharpened pruners, sturdy
gloves and a small bucket for the clippings. If you
do not have a bucket, come anyway as we have a few
available to loan.
3. Dress for the weather, it can be
changeable in the summer months. A hat or visor is
recommended and sunscreen is a must even when it is
overcast. Some folks bring a bottle of water too.
4. Novices are welcome and will be
paired with an experienced rosarian who will make
you an expert “deadheader” in a few minutes.
5. You will be asked to spray your
pruners with Lysol (provided) to help prevent the
spread of crown hall, which is caused by a bacteria
found in the soil.
6. Now for the fun part: when the
work is completed for the day, everyone is invited
to a no-host meal at a nearby casual eatery. What a
great way to get better acquainted with TRS members!
