Propagating roses is one of the most difficult and rewarding hobbies once you see the newly created rose bush. Roses can be propagated from the planting of cuttings, grafting cuttings onto a new root stock, or using seeds from the rose’s hips. Deanna Krause will share with us her proven techniques to propagate as a way to expand and share her garden with others.

Deanna and her husband, Earl, have been growing roses for over 40 years and are active rose exhibitors with many first place trophies. Their garden includes unique rose varieties that are hard to find in other gardens. Ray Ponton, a long time friend and hybridizer with the Texas Rose Rustlers named one of his seedlings in commerce after Deanna. You can purchase the shrub “Deanna Krause’ at the Antique Rose Emporium.

All Consulting Rosarians who attend this virtual meeting will receive one hour of continuing education credit. CRs will be required to email Suzanne Gilbert at [email protected] prior to the meeting with their email address and screen name used on GoTo Meeting and also include the name of their rose society in order to receive credit.
