Next Meeting:  Tue., June 4 @ 1:30 PM

Program:  Member’s Round Table “My Two Cents” plus the “Biggest Little Rose Show in the Mother Lode.”

At our June 4th meeting we will be sharing tips covering a wide range of topics on growing roses in Member’s Round Table “My Two Cents.” We will learn from our member’s what works and what doesn’t.  Topics may range from favorite fertilizer, fragrant roses, how to deal with critters or any type of rose related topic.  Got a question about growing roses?  This is a great format to ask questions and get answers.
