Events & Meetings

So, are you a rose lover and enthusiast? Or maybe you just have an unidentified rose that came with the new house you just purchased, that seems to have some potential? Are you having questions about growing & caring for roses? Come to one of our meetings or events and gain valuable gardening advice from many of the rosarians on hand. You’ll get to see award-winning roses on display and get a chance to learn more about them while having a visual floral experience to delight your senses. All of our meetings are open to the public, so come and join us! You do not have to be a member, although we’d love to have you join. Whether you are new to growing roses or a long-time rosarian, you are welcome.
