Susie and Steve Jones

In 2014, Steve & Susie Jones embarked on two trips, one to visit nine countries in Europe (and Japan) and another to India.  Their talk will concentrate on the rose gardens throughout their travels and other gardens of interest.  They both enjoy traveling to gardens, conducting rose trials for new roses and visiting with their foreign friends.  The trips were built around two World Federation of Rose Societies conventions in Barcelona, Spain and Hyderabad, India. 

Steve is the President of the World Federation of Rose Societies, and Past President of the American Rose Society.  He is also a Horticulture and Arrangement Judge, Master Rosarian and has received numerous awards for his roses and his rose photography. An avid collector of rose books, he has a very extensive library of rose literature.

Steve and Susie and are extensive world travelers, visiting rose gardens and rose friends.  A few years ago, Steve and Susie relocated to Fiddletown, and we are delighted they are now part of the Mother Lode Rose Society.
