PROGRAM:  “Organic Fertilizers for Roses”, by Rhiannon Spaw

Serious rose growers are always looking for the best fertilizers, because roses are heavy feeders and love to be fed.  Many growers are advocates for strictly organic products while others like to use a mixture of organic and chemical in order to get the benefits of both.

Fox Farms Soil & Fertilizer Company is a nationally recognized family owned organic fertilizer company.  All formulas are handcrafted in small quantities to ensure consistency and quality control.  Among their products are: Soil and soil conditioners, dry fertilizer, soluble fertilizer, liquid fertilizer, hydroponics and pest control products.  Their products are available at most of our garden centers.

Rhiannon Spaw has a horticulture degree from Montana State and has been the local representative for Fox Farms for 5 1/2 years.  She now does sales and product training for Fox Farms fertilizer products.  She describes herself as a “total plant nerd”.  (we’ll see .  . . J )

I’m sure you will find her program interesting and educational.


Our July meeting is always a very special meeting and because of that, I want to give you an early notice and some extra preparation time.

First, it will be our Annual Ice Cream & Birthday Bash – we are 56 years old.  Secondly, we will have a “Bring & Buy” flea-market sort of sale of rose-related items (and probably some that are not rose-related).  We have done this for several years, and it has been a lot of fun.  Everyone likes a nice bargain!  Items brought should be in good, useable condition.  The sale will be the “silent auction” format and all proceeds will go into our treasury to help support important functions of our Rose Society.  While you are enjoying your ice cream and cake, you can be strategically placing your bids on the treasures you want to buy.  Come prepared to buy.  In recent years, we’ve had more “sellers” than buyers.

Be looking around your closets and storage areas for goodies
you might want to bring – and don’t forget the money to buy.
