Here are the particulars, as published in the newspaper:
Master Gardener General Membership Meeting (open to the public)
Date: Wednesday, March 18, 2015
Time: 12:30pm NOTE: Daytime meeting
Location: Central Rappahannock Library Theater Room, 1201 Caroline Street, Fredericksburg. VA 22401
Speaker: Connie Hilker, an expert on historic roses and is a member of the Board of Trustees of the Heritage Rose Foundation. Connie’s overall message is that ‘roses are not rocket science’ and she strives to show that anyone with a basic knowledge of gardening can choose appropriate roses and grow them well. She presently has over 700 varieties of roses in her garden!
Title: Roses 101
The meeting is free and open to the public, and everyone who wants to learn more about roses is encouraged to attend. The talk lasts for about an hour, and there will be more than enough time for questions afterward. My goal is to give everyone in the audience the power to go home and grow roses without fear.
