What’s Coming Next…

We can all agree that 2021 has not been the year we planned but we have had many opportunities to learn and grow and be together — sometimes in person and sometimes virtually. When a door is closed, a window opens. And, the virtual option proved to be a wonderful window by bringing us incredible speakers from around the world…

JANUARY: Gaye Hammond (Past President of the Houston Rose Society) from Houston, Texas regaled us with beautiful garden designs.

FEBRUARY: Carrie Bergs (Past President of the Greater Milwaukee Rose Society) from Wisconsin joined us virtually to share her love for growing old garden roses she calls her “Pink Ladies.” We all had new roses on our list after that!

MARCH: Marilyn Wellan (Past President of the American Rose Society) from Louisiana, shared with us the progress of the Great Garden Restoration going on at the American Rose Center in Shreveport, LA.

APRIL: Diane Sommers, (soon to be president of the American Rose Society) from Wisconsin, joined us to share how to preserve fresh roses. Drywrapping is one technique that you can use to store your rose without water, rehydrating at a future date.

The Zoom recordings for Gaye’s and Carrie’s programs can be found HERE.


We have much more to come! Mark your calendars.
