Mississippi Old Garden Rose Society

Winter 2021

Date/Time Frequency:  Our group normally meets the third Sunday of each month with the exception of July and August.  Meetings begin at 2:00 PM and last approximately two hours.

Because of the rain on our original pruning date, we've rescheduled our pruning party at Greenwood Cemetery to February 27, 2021.  Please join us as we have fun and fellowship working to increase the health and beauty of the cemetery's roses.  Don't forget your gloves, pruners, loppers, clippers and saws.  A pruning demonstration will be provided for those needing instructions.  NOTE:  There is a 40% change of rain this Saturday, so on that morning you can call 601-209-1478 to see if we are still pruning.   Location: Northwest Street at the intersection of George Street in downtown Jackson, MS.
