Rose Pruning - Putting Your Roses to Bed

David Bassani

David Bassani holds a C-27 license and is a Landscape Contractor and Creative Designer, and roses are a significant part of his business, Bassani's Greenscapes, Inc. With his assistants, he prunes 1,500 roses in the Fall/Winter, and prunes and cares for a few hundred roses year-around.
The very best source for clear information on any type of plant are the plant societies. David is a paying member of 10 rose societies in the triangle between Portland, Honolulu, and Mesa, Arizona. It is necessary to know, which roses do well in the heat or in humid coastal conditions.
David is the former president of the San Fernando Valley Rose Society, the current president of the Beverly Hills Rose Society, a member of the Intl. Rose Selection Panel, a member of the ARS Advisory Committee, a Horticultural Judge, a Master Rosarian, he authors a garden column under the name D the G, and he is a consultant, lecturer, and rose lover.
David's presentation will cover several types of pruning including winter, finger, summer, rotation, staggered, pruning for an event, and shovel pruning. David generously offered to gift our Club with one or two containerized roses, which will be raffled off at the meeting.
