PROGRAM:  “New Rose Introductions” ~ by Meg Ware

As we turn the page on 2017, we naturally begin to think of new things, and look with anticipation to what the new year might bring.  For dedicated gardeners and rose growers, those “new things” always seem to include new roses and maybe even new gardens, or at least improvements to existing gardens.  Serious rose growers are always looking for the newer and better roses coming on the market.  With that in mind, our program for January will feature the new roses being introduced in 2018, along with a “look back” at some recent introductions, with an assessment of how they are doing in our area.

Meg Ware is a Master Rosarian who grows and exhibits roses of several types.  Meg, and hubby Bill, maintain beautiful gardens in the Fair Oaks development.  While Meg and Bill grow some of the traditional hybrids and miniatures, they have an adventure-some spirit which leads them to an assortment of unusual shrubs and old garden roses.  Meg has been a ”student” of roses for many years and has a wealth of knowledge to share with us.  She will briefly describe some of the “test & trial” programs and show pictures of many of the winners.  Most of the new roses will be in local nurseries in late February – early March, and you will want to do your rose shopping armed with this information. 

Mark your calendars ~ start 2018 right ~ Plan to come and bring a friend.
