Who are we?/What is the New England Rose Society?
We are a community of people from all walks of life united by our love and passion for America’s favorite flower — the Rose.
What does the New England Rose Society do?
The New England Rose Society seeks to educate its members and the public in all aspects of rose culture.
In addition to outstanding guest speakers at each meeting, we offer special seminars for in-depth exploration of rose topics, such as soil chemistry, budding and hybridizing, and pest and disease control. Members receive discounts on roses and garden center merchandise.
Whether you are about to plant your very first rose or already have several roses in your garden, you’ll find a wealth of information in our monthly programs, newsletter, Consulting Rosarians and on-line resources.
