Managing Garden Pests for Roses and More

Sunday | May 09, 2021 | 1:00 pm — 2:00 pm

Online Event

The variety of roses we can grow here around San Francisco is astounding, and roses can provide nearly year-round blooms in our gardens.  San Francisco’s long growing season also means there is more time for bad bugs and diseases to develop.  Learn from expert Suzanne Bontempo about the diseases and insect pests particular to our area, and how to prevent those problems before they take over your roses and your garden.  Many pesticides can do more harm than good. She will show you how to manage garden pests such as aphids, whiteflies, powdery mildew, gophers and more. Please join us on Sunday May 9th, 2021, 1pm
