Butte Rose Society's 2018 Events, Programs, & Calendar

NEXT MEETING - APRIL 24, 2018's PROGRAM:

 

Butte Rose Society Program Topic for April  "I Love Miniature Roses"

The Butte Rose Society (BRS) will be holding their next general monthly meeting on Tuesday, April 24th at 7 PM.  The meeting is held at the Veterans Hall at 554 Rio Lindo Ave. Chico.  You are invited to come join the fun and learn more about growing and caring for roses!

Jan Burnham, Consulting Rosarian, Northern California-Nevada-Hawaii (NCNH) and American Rose Society (ARS) horticulture judge, and current President of BRS will be presenting a program discussing the attributes of miniature roses.  She will provide information regarding the ARS Handbook of Top Rated Miniature Roses, the new miniature roses included in Roses in Review for 2018, care of “minis,” and sources for purchasing miniatures roses.  She will conclude with pictures of the favorites in her garden and her reasons for loving the minis.  Jan grows a number of miniature roses and, if the weather cooperates, she will be bringing specimens of the minis from her garden. 

Visitors are always welcome to the program. Annual membership cost is $25, plus $5 for additional ACTIVE members in the SAME household.  If you have any questions about the program, please contact Mary McCormick, Program Director, at 530-809-2090. Hope to see you there!

 

Little Rose Show will resume at the April general meeting.
