Roses 101

Roses! The quintessential beauty of the garden. We love them, but sometimes we struggle with them. But they don’t have to be difficult or finicky. Learn how to choose, site, plant, and care for roses. Good choices and improved knowledge will result in a long-lived, robust and, of course, gorgeous display in your garden.

On Wednesday November 22 our special guest speaker is Elizabeth Schleicher from the Hamilton & Burlington Rose Society. Elizabeth will talk about growing roses. Elizabeth is an accredited judge of horticulture and design. Her passion for roses inspired her to become an accredited Canadian Rose Society rose judge.

She is past president of the Canadian Rose Society and her local club, the Hamilton and Burlington Rose Society.

Currently Elizabeth is Flower Show chair for Burlington Horticultural Society and Secretary for Garden Clubs of Ontario, Judges’ Council. She also is an active member in numerous other societies.

In her free time she enjoys the hobbies of photography, gardening, travel and jewellery crafts.

All are welcome to attend this presentation. There is no charge but there will be a donation box at the door if you’d like to support the work of the club.

One thought on “Roses 101

  1. I met Elizabeth Schleicher at the RBG’s Rose Garden presentation last night. We heard Peter Kukielski, garden designer, consultant, and author of “Roses Without Chemicals”. Here’s hoping that this new ecologically aware path for the the RBG will influence rose growers towards a more holistic approach.
