MONTHLY  MEETING

September 16, 2014, 7:30 p.m. - Atlanta Botanical Garden, Workshop Room

 

Our program speaker this month will be our own, Linda Krontz Schuppener, amatuer rose hybridizer, giving us a presentation on how to hybridize roses in simple terms.  Linda has been enjoying hybridizing for more 12 years.  Like a box of chocolates, you never know what you are going to get!  Come hear and see the basic steps for this process, and maybe you, too, can create a rose and chose a name for it!   Refreshments will be served.
