Antique Rose Restoration Project - Initial Meeting

The Easton Cemetery is looking for volunteers to assist Master Gardeners from Penn State Extension with the care and restoration of the cemetery’s antique roses. Over twenty roses have been marked thus far. Clearing a bed around the roses, fertilizing and mulching will begin this initial work day. However, weekly monitoring and documentation will be needed as the roses bloom. Old roses are not pruned until after they bloom, and a pruning day will be scheduled accordingly. If you'd enjoy helping out with this project, on May 4th or in the future, please contact Mike Hosking at immike@gmail.com or call 610-250-0259.
