Rose Buzz: Learning More About Growing Roses


If you are local, I would like to personally invite you to join us at the Indianapolis Rose Society meetings! This year is filled to the brim with great rose fun like Rosefest, and a Wine and Roses Garden Tour. If you have even a mild interest in growing roses, I just don’t want you to miss!

Our next meeting is Tuesday, April 12. This meeting will include 2 mini programs, I will give a mini program on companion plants for roses and  my friend, Monica Taylor, will have a mini session on planting roses in containers. We will have an update on our Rosefest (details here) which is coming up in June and our monthly roundtable discussion lead by John Hefner on diseases we are dealing with. Our evening ends with a raffle and the prizes are quite nice! Oh, and Marilyn Ferguson makes sure we have yummy snacks too.



We meet on the 2nd Tuesday of the month at 6:30 in the evening at the Sullivan Munce building in charming downtown Zionsville! That is except for special events and they are usually on the weekend. Read on here for the complete 2016 schedule.

Our time together ranges from member garden parties, wine and roses parties and tours (always popular as there are some amazing gardens) to workshops on rose pests and diseases, general rose care, as well as recommendations for growing roses in our region! It is amazing how much we learn from the experts we bring in and from our local members!

Our meetings are open to the public, so not only are you invited, but you can bring friends. You can let me know you are coming or just surprise us. There’s always room for more. Many of us carpool so contact me if you want to be a part of that.

Questions welcome!

  1. I do wish I lived closer…as far as I can tell their are no rose or gardening of any kind society…not sure if that is because most people here do everything via the LDS church or not but I suspect it is…

  2. All I can say is I wish I was local! Sounds like you are going to have a glorious rose season!
