Rose Event - 4th Annual Rose Lover’s Gathering


The Heritage Rose Foundation announced that The North Central Florida Heritage Roses Group is sponsoring the 4th Annual Rose Lover's Gathering at Angel Gardens, l4228 NW 222 Place, Alachua, Florida on Saturday, April 14, 2012 from 11a.m. to 6 p.m.  There will lunch, raffles and more.   Besides enjoying the beautiful Angel Gardens, you’ll be treated to two well-known speakers with their informative talk about roses. 

Ruth Knopf : Ruth is one of the earliest Rose Rustlers in America. She has collected Old Garden Roses for many decades, pioneering the Preservation Movement that has become a legacy for others to follow. She will be accompanied by the City of Charleston's Horticulturist, Joanne Breland.  Ruth was last year's honoree for the Great Rosarian of the World Celebration which takes place at the Huntington in LA and again in New York for her work with Noisette roses.  Ruth is a fountain of knowledge when it comes to Old Roses, and we are proud and honored to have her come.

Peggy  Martin:   Peggy travels all over the United States teaching about the easy care of Old Garden Roses.  Her namesake rose, ‘The Peggy Martin Rose,’ has been sold by the thousands to raise money to help restore gardens along the Gulf Coast after Hurricane Katrina.  “The Peggy Martin Rose” miraculously survived the floods in New Orleans.  Peggy is a member of the long-lived New Orleans Old Garden Rose Society and brings the current President, Margaret Ganier, with her to Angel Gardens.

Roses are easy plants to grow contrary to popular belief. Why do you think Roses have been around for millions of years?  All they need are food, water and sunlight.  Just like you and me.
