We meet at the Annerley Church Hall (Downstairs), 459 Annerley Road, Annerley Junction. The subject will be preparing roses for winter.  Subject to COVID lockdowns

Coming to a Monthly Meeting is FREE! 

If you have a passion for roses, this is for you.  The Rose Society is a group of everyday people who love growing roses or just admiring them.  Most gardeners grow between 2 and 30 rose bushes, some grow lots more. 

If you have roses, would like to grow roses, would like to show them, or just attend some meetings to look at beautiful displays and hear interesting speakers, then come along and meet us. We have many low cost social events for members.  There is a demonstration on how to prune roses at the end of June each year.  We visit beautiful private gardens of Rose Society members that never open to the general public.

Secretary Report December Quarterly 2021

Another year as secretary and I would again like to thank Bevan and Shirley Dance who have helped me no end throughout the year. Shirley has continued in the role of assistant secretary, and with my family being in Tasmania, both have taken up my slack on many occasions.

My role as secretary has continued to be one of much correspondence in and out. Like last year, 2021 has been a year of little more than correspondence via email, a little “snail mail” and telephone calls. Your rose committee has taken on virtual meetings and has been fortunate to also keep up with what has been happening and plan future events in person. Meetings between the states have still been conducted virtually.

The much-anticipated World Federation of Roses Conference 2022 is still in planning. Keep Adelaide from 27 October to 3 November 2022 in mind if you have the urge to travel. We are hoping that international travel can resume in time.  Members will be updated with relevant information as it comes to hand, through the quarterly and hopefully with monthly meetings.

I continue to receive many emails from members of the public requesting all manner of information. “How do I grow and care for my roses, where can I buy a particular rose and how do I join the Rose Society?” are popular questions.

The following gardening events are again being planned for next year. As was the case in 2021, any event could be cancelled or postponed (possibly at short notice) or there could be late changes to program, entry requirements, etc. Check the organiser’s website and/or Facebook page and/or contact them directly to find out the current status of an event.
