If you think you have a lot of roses to prune imagine the daunting task of pruning thousands and thousands of roses in a public garden! The San Jose Municipal Rose Garden is one of the largest in America and in fact in 2010 was named America's Best Rose Garden by the AARS.

The garden is suppported by an incredible group of volunteers called Friend's Of The San Jose Garden. They organize events like pruning, plant sales, teaching opportunities and more. Their website is full of great rose information and I advises you to check it out. You can also download their newsletters from the site.

While this isn't a "how to" video I thought it would be a nice break during the cold weather to get inspired by 375 volunteers who love roses and love this rose garden. Enjoy!

Happy Roseing
Paul
