Easy Rose Gardening

UPDATED MARCH 30: due to the forecast, this program has been relocated from the Minot Rose Garden to the Coolidge Corner Library Meeting Room.

Join Master Rosarian David Cannistraro to learn the basics of selecting, planting, and caring for roses throughout the seasons. David will discuss both traditional and organic rose care, and share images of roses and local rose gardens – including Brookline’s own Minot Rose Garden!

David Cannistraro is past President of the New England Rose Society, an American Rose Society Master Rosarian, and a horticultural rose judge. He is the owner of Just Roses, a rose garden design, restoration, and maintenance company.
