Won’t you come in to the garden, I’d like my roses to see you. – Richard Brinsley Sheridan

The holiday’s are over and winter is winding down, so, it’s that time. Time to get back to gardening! We have so many great events planned: Practical opportunities for learn the basics during our “Round Table Q and A” time during each meeting. And a few road trips!

Our theme for this garden year is ROSES TAKE YOU PLACES. Whether it’s the gardens you visit or the stories of the roses themselves – where they come from and their family tree, roses do indeed take you places!

We have a road trip planned to the beautiful home and garden of Joe and Carrie Bergs in Wisconsin. For that trip we also have a tour of Steve Singer Roses in Kenosha. Steve will give us a tour of his hybridizing process and his rose fields as well as give tips on rose hybridization. There may be a few more surprises for this trip too. Stay tuned.

And, two very special district events that you can read about here … https://illinoisindianadistrict.org/

You just might meet a few “FAMOUS” rose people along the way!

Our meetings are open to the public, so grab a friend and join us.
