Saturday, February 18th 10:00 am – 3:00 pm at Sky Nursery, the Seattle Rose Society offers four hours of classes on growing roses.

Roses are the very emblem of romance and beauty, and they perform brilliantly here in the mild climate of the Northwest when you meet their basic needs.

For the first time ever at Sky, join rosarians from the Seattle Rose Society for a full day of rose mania. An affiliate of the American Rose Society, the Seattle Rose Society has been promoting — and growing — roses here since 1913!

Among other activities, the Rose Society helped plan the Woodland Park Zoo Rose Garden (now a nationally recognized site: 2 ½ acres with over 300 varieties), and every June they hold a Rose Show in which local rosarians and amateurs can compete.

The Rose Society will hold four seminars on specific aspects of rose growing, and experts will be available to share their enthusiasm throughout the day. Come for one or more of the seminars, or come for the full day!
