Growing Roses In An Urban Garden

Featuring: Jay Jensen, American Rose Society

Basics and beyond: In one of our most informative meetings, our speaker introduced us to growing techniques and varieties suitable to our micro-climate, energy levels and environmental concerns.

His photos were wonderful, and the details in his PowerPoint incredibly valuable to novice and experienced rose gardeners alike. The presentation deck that he used is attached below, and has lots and lots of information, photos, etc.

Mr. Jensen on several occasions referred to our Past President, Carol Edwards, as a great source for information on Organic Rose gardening.

Members who are particularly interested in roses will want to visit the website for the American Rose Society, or maybe consider joining. The Society exists to promote the culture and appreciation of the rose, through education and research to members, to local rose societies and their members, and to the public. After you have seen the sampling of photos here, taken from their website, you'll want to click the link below to see all the rest!

For even more information on growing roses, please visit the Member's Articles page of the Club's website where you'll find articles written by our own member and past president, Carol Edwards.
