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.

 
 

The Society meets at Church Hall, 459 Annerley Road, Annerley Junction, Brisbane at 7 p.m. on the second Wednesday of February, March, April, June, July, September, November and December.
