Bring your most beautiful roses to Wenke Greenhouses on Saturday, August 16th, to put the results of your best efforts up against other roses grown by homeowners in southwest Michigan area to see how your’s “stackup”, and maybe even win a prize!

Come for a little friendly competition, a lot of discussion about what you can do to grow better roses, information on preparation of cut flowers for best effect, and to find out how American Rose Society judges determine which roses are worthy of recognition in an ARS affiliated Rose Show.

This is a great opportunity to interact with others who grow roses, some of them with many years of experience, and to learn about the many different types of roses that are currently available in the market place, many of which are very easy to grow, even for a beginner, and many have wonderful fragrance, in addition to the beautiful flowers.

You don’t have to be a member to participate. Come, regardless of your experience or knowledge of roses, to join in the fun, and to see and smell the roses!
