What is a Monthly Show/Meeting?


It can be daunting to think of what a meeting could involve. Is this a hobby only for the rich? Do I have enough roses? But I am a beginner... These are all things that flash through people's heads as they contemplate coming to an event.


The simple answer is that the Queensland Rose Society is made up of all types of people and everyone will make you feel welcome. The experience of some growers is outstanding, but there are no secrets in roses. They will share all of that knowledge with you and without thinking any question is silly.


Monthly Meetings involve a small rose show where members bring flowers along at 7:00pm and put them put on display in bottles provided at the hall. A list of entry "classes" can be found at Schedules. These are then judged and at around 7.30pm there is usually a presentation by either members or guest speakers. There is time before and after this to meet with experienced rose growers to ask anything you like, or just discuss the beautiful display.


2023 National Rose Show Championships and Conference


On behalf of the Rose Society of Western Australia, it is my great pleasure to invite you to attend this year’s National Rose Show Championships and Conference to be held in Perth on the 21st and 22nd October 2023.


You will find the attached Program of Events contains full details of the conference, commencing on Friday 20th October with a Welcome Cocktail Party and concluding on Sunday 22nd October with additional guest speakers and a guided tour by Patsy Durack of her magnificent Gooseberry Hill Garden.  In addition, we have arranged a comprehensive post-conference program from 23rd to 26th October for delegates who wish to extend their stay in Perth.  Highlights include a visit to Government House Gardens, Queens Gardens, the Swan Valley, a cruise to Fremantle for a guided tour, and afternoon tea at Western Australia’s Parliament House.


Yours sincerely,
