Peterson Rose Garden Cuttings
During the winter break, the winter pruning of the George Peterson Rose Garden took place. Typically, the Grounds Department gives the public free rose cuttings to take home in hopes of growing their own beautiful roses.
While free cuttings were not handed out during the winter break, the Grounds Department will keep the tradition alive. The annual pruning and cleanup of the Peterson Rose Garden is a very labor-intensive project. In order to be successful in the timely completion of the pruning and still serve the campus with free cuttings, it has been decided to split the two programs; the deep pruning of the Rose Garden during January, and the free cuttings later in the spring.
A separate announcement will be sent out to the campus as a reminder when the time comes for the free cuttings.
Thank you for understanding.
Feel free to contact Mike Alonzo, Supervisor of Grounds and Landscape at extension 3909 with any questions.
