Rose pruning demonstration at Rose Garden at Woodland Park Zoo

The Seattle Rose Society hosts its annual rose pruning demonstration at the Rose Garden at Woodland Park Zoo.

Learn where and how much to cut and how to use your tools properly for correct cuts, and discover the varieties of roses and pruning techniques. Gain insight into the world of roses and how to care for them, and get answers to your questions by rosarians.
