  3. Time to prune roses!
    The forsythia is blooming in Kitsap County so that means the light and weather conditions are right growth of roses. You can begin pruning modern roses now to get the earliest blooms. Pruning later just means later blooms. Once blooming Old Garden Roses should only only be pruned after flowering.
Kitsap Regional Library, Silverdale rose pruning was held on a very sunny Sunday March 19, 2017.
Club picnic will be at Eastman' s home in Poulsbo in August.
