President's Message
Mary Ann Hext

Spring at last! So now our rose work begins; but it will be well worth it when we have beautiful blooms to enjoy until the frost next fall. My rose “to do” list includes weeding, checking pH again, starting my spring pruning, fertilizing, and then mulching. I plan to prune the first three weeks in April so I will have some blooms for our show, the Nashville Rose Show, and the ARS National Spring Convention and Rose Show in Columbus as I hope to attend all three. I have tried to calculate the dates (see below) but will stagger my pruning. I hope to enter arrangements at all three, so will have to decide on my containers and then try to prune roses that I would like to have to use in them. 

Rose show plans are well underway. Certificates have been ordered, we have judges, and our schedule will be on our website and the Tenarky website very soon.. 

Plans are being made for our “After the Rose Show Dinner” to be held at the Hartland Salon and I will provide details at the meeting. Be sure you marked your calendars for the date which is Monday evening, June 1. Our district director, Sam Jones and first lady, Nancy, will be attending and Sam will be presenting an interesting program.

Make plans to be at the April meeting. Bob and Ann have a list of roses that will be available at Jackson’s Orchard & Nursery to share. We are having an entertaining program and also a really nice door prize being donated by one of our members. See you there!
