Top roses a mat­ter of tim­ing THE ESSEN­TIALS

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

LEE Van Bo­heemen will con­test the Na­tional Rose So­ci­ety Cham­pi­onships at the 2016 Spring Rose Show this week­end but says it won’t be easy.

Mr Van Bo­heemen, of Hamer­s­ley, said peo­ple who pruned their roses early would have the best chance at the prize.

“I pruned 10½ weeks ago and my roses are still strug­gling,” he said.

“It’s all a mat­ter of tim­ing but un­for­tu­nately you can’t pre­dict the weather.”

The Rose So­ci­ety of WA will host the Na­tional Cham­pi­onships at Sor­rento Surf Life­sav­ing Club.

There will be rose blooms ex­hib­ited in var­i­ous judged classes, in­clud­ing flo­ral art, a dis­play by the Her­itage Roses in Aus­tralia Inc (Perth Re­gion) and blooms from the Swiss Rose Gar­den Nurs­ery.
