On Sunday, 7 July, Rose-lovers are encouraged to visit Araluen Botanic Park and indulge in a special treat.
Members of the Rose Society of WA are making their annual pilgrimage to Araluen to conduct their excellent informal Rose pruning demonstrations and will be on hand between the hours of 11am to 3pm to provide free expert, friendly, helpful and practical advice on growing, pruning and caring for Roses.
Additionally, it is planned to have some free samples of Neutrog rose care products and information available.
Araluen Botanic Park Foundation general manager Rod Ross said, “We are eternally grateful to the Rose Society and Neutrog for their ongoing involvement at Araluen.  Their participation not only benefits the Park’s world-class rose display, it also presents a great opportunity for garden lovers to learn how to demystify the art of pruning rose plants and cultivate a rose display at home that will be the envy of their neighbourhood.”
“Visitors to the Park are encouraged to make the most of the experience by bringing family and friends to have a picnic, BBQ or dine in at the Chalet Healy Tearooms.  They can also take a stroll through the gardens while picking up some great rose gardening tips.”
Of course, Araluen Botanic Park is a wonderful place to visit at any time of the year due to its moderate climate and running water all year round.  It is open 9am to 6pm daily and features bush walks, picnic and BBQ areas, the Chalet Healy Tearooms offering visitors the unique experience of a genuine 1930s Canadian log cabin and the ambient Roundhouse Gift Shop.  Modest entry fees apply.   Araluen Botanic Park is a SmokeFree venue.
