Stephen Scanniello Pruning Classes

The Old City Cemetery Committee presents two rose pruning classes led by rose expert Stephan Scanniello on Saturday, January 11, 2020 at 9 a.m and 1 p.m. at the Historic City Cemetery.

The Historic Rose Garden will again host Stephen Scanniello, a Great Rosarian of the World, president of the Heritage Rose Foundation and curator of the Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden, for two pruning workshops. This is a chance to learn from an expert and to be regaled with many entertaining tales of roses and the people who grow them by a man known as “the rock star of roses.” The first, at 9 am, will focus on pruning climbing roses. The second, at 1 pm, will show techniques for pruning and rehabilitating mature plants.

Tickets are available at https://cemeteryrosepruning.bpt.me/ at a cost of a $10 donation per workshop.  Donations will be shared between the Heritage Rose Foundation and the Historic Rose Garden.

The cemetery is located at 1000 Broadway, Sacramento. There is limited parking within the cemetery, but parking is also available on surrounding surface streets. For more information, call 916-715-7294.
