Birtsmorton court has a variety of mature climbing roses on walls and structures around the gardens.  Mike Gogerty the Head Gardener, will talk about the principles of pruning climbers , how to clean and sharpen secateurs and pruning tools, and we will then set to work in the garden.  There will be an opportunity for a tour of the gardens before we leave.
