See Our Roses!
Come and see beautiful locally grown roses and arrangements from both amateur and expert gardeners. People will be available to answer any rose related questions that you might have.
Show Your Roses!
Here’s the chance to show off what you have. This is a more local show than the big regional ones so it’s very possible for new people to come in with their roses and be competitive. (My wife won a First Place prize in her very first Rose Show.)
If your friends are complimenting you one your roses then they will very likely do well in our show. We will have people available to help you show how to put your best petal forward and show your roses well. For some more info on showing, check out this post on How to Prepare Your Roses for the Show.
Check out the pictures below. I’m sure you have a few that are just as good, or better, than those. There are a lot of classes, so even if your blooms are not the “classic form” bring them in anyway. We’ll show you how to present them.
The SRS Rose Show is open for Rose Society members and we have special categories for non-members. (And if you’re not a member, and you want to become one, you can sign up right at the show.)
