Garden Club and Rose Society host plants, pots and posies at Peace Park

If your rose garden is looking more neglected than professional, it might be a good idea to head to Peace Park on Saturday, July 13.

The Kiama Garden Club will combine with the Illawarra Rose Society for the annualPlants, Pots and Posies and rose pruning demonstration from 10am-2pm.

"There's an art in where you cut and where you don't and the shape, said Esmay Foster, who has been a member of both the Garden Club and the Rose Society for more than 10 years.

"Winsome Parker had the idea of turning this are into Peace Park, an area of reflection for people."
