Droughts are not an uncommon phenomenon in Texas, especially during the summer. It poses risks and complications to plants that are water-lovers, like the common Rose. Lack of adequate water will negatively impact roses, causing less new shoots and fewer roots, as well as attracting insects and making them more vulnerable to disease. In our August meeting, Jolene Adams will address Roses in the Drought via GoToMeeting. Jolene Adams has over 60 years experience in growing roses. She is the former president of American Rose Society, ARS Master Rosarian, ARS Horticultural Judge, editor and director for various societies.

This meeting is going to be a virtual meeting held at GoToMeeting on August 13 from 7:00PM to 9:00PM (CDT).
