Friends at the Carnegie Speaker Series

Join us on Monday, January 24 at 7:00pm in the Carnegie Building, located at 451 E Mitchell St, for The Secret to Growing Roses with Mary Netzky. Have you always wanted to grow roses, but heard they took too much care? Bought a rose bush that looked great on the label but only produced a few stingy blooms and died over the winter? Some rose varieties are not abundant bloomers nor winter hardy, and do get lots of diseases. But there is a whole world of rose varieties that any gardener can grow, surviving for years with spectacular blooms. Mary Netzky will share the secrets she has learned from over 30 years of successful rose growing in climate zone 4 or colder. Mary is a past president of Northern Chicagoland Rose Society and its newsletter editor, a Consulting Rosarian for The American Rose Society, and co-owner of Rose Gardens by Mike and Mary. Masks are required to attend this program.
