Next Rose Society meeting will be on Thursday April 4th at 7 pm.
The Next meeting of the CFRS will feature our own Master Rosarian
Elaine Pawlikowski giving a presentation ‘The ABCs of Roses’.
Elaine will will present a Power Point program entitled “The ABCs of Roses”. The program will cover the basics of growing roses in Central Florida based on Elaine’s experience over the past 30 years. She will discuss rose varieties that do well in our gardens, and their cultural needs. In addition Elaine will share time tested planting and fertilizing methods. Those who visited the CFRS booth at the recent Leu Garden’s plant sale were invited to join us at the April meeting. Let’s have a great turn out to welcome them! Please invite your gardening friends! Our visitors, as well as current CFRS members, will certainly benefit from Elaine’s experience and advice on growing roses in Central Florida.
Then our May 2nd meeting will feature a Noted David Austin English Rose expert – Master Rosarian Connie Vierbicky
We welcome a very special speaker to our May 2nd meeting. Noted David Austin English Rose expert Connie Vierbicky, a Master Rosarian and past president of the Bradenton-Sarasota Rose Society. Connie has been growing English roses for over twenty-five years, and visited England in the summer of 2007 and was privileged to lunch with Mr Austin. She will show you beautiful slides of his nursery with its five magnificent gardens, his test growing fields, and a step-by-step picture analysis of David Austin’s hybridization process. She also has slides of her favorite English roses that grow well in our Florida gardens. Mark your calendars and plan to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity. More details on Connie’s presentation will be included in the May Wind Chimes.
