ROSE SHOWS FOR THE SECOND HALF OF JUNE 2012



June is rose month and roses are blooming everywhere.  This year, it seems everything is ahead of schedule.  Plenty of rain enhances the growth and the bloom production.  

More rose societies are holding their rose shows in June.  Rose Show is the perfect place to see beautiful roses.  They are free events and you’ll have a chance to meet knowledgeable rosarians who can answer all your rose-related questions.  They are a nice and friendly group of people.  You may want to join the local rose society sponsoring the rose show which entitles you to a trial membership in the American Rose Society.

 Contrary to popular belief, it is not difficult to grow Roses.  It all depends on what kind of roses you want to grow.  Roses have been around for millions of years, some in cemeteries with no care whatsoever.  All they need are food, water and sunlight.  Just like you and me.
