Our Speaker will beKathy Monge, Consulting Rosarian 

Kathy Monge will be presenting her program on chilli thrips. If you have roses and you do not have chilli thrips you are either very fortunate or do not know what those nasty thrips and their damage looks like. These critters are really bad actors. They use rasping parts of their mouth to scrape the petal leaf and stems of the new growth on roses.
