BUTTE ROSE SOCIETY

Chico, CA

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

NEXT MEETING - JANUARY PROGRAM:

Our January 30, 2018 program will feature our own Butte Rose Society member Gwen Quail. The topic this month is “Shade Tolerant Roses.”  While most roses prefer about six hours of direct sunlight to perform well, there are many roses that will still flower with less sun than that.  Gwen’s program will speak from her own experience of growing roses in the shade and from resources provided by other rose growers. 

As well as being Past President of the Butte Rose Society, Gwen is a Consulting Rosarian accredited by the American Rose Society and an experienced and entertaining speaker.  She will talk to a PowerPoint presentation with rose photos and provide printed information with rose names.

The Butte Rose Society is holding their next general monthly meeting on Tuesday, January 30th at 7:00 pm.  You are invited to come join the fun!  The meeting is held at the Veterans Hall at 554 Rio Lindo Ave. Chico.  If you have any questions, 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.
