Please join us this month at the Historic Greenwood Cemetery for our annual pruning party.  Have fun and fellowship as we work to increase the health and beauty of the cemetery's large collection of own root roses.  The cuttings from these roses are yours to keep!  Don't forget your gloves, pruners, loppers, clippers and saws.  Location:  North West Street, Jackson, Mississippi.

March 15 - 17, 2019 - Society Booth at the  Jackson Garden Extravaganza 

Date/Time Frequency:  Our group normally meets the third Sunday of each month with the exception of July and August.  Meetings begin at 2:00 PM and last for two hours.

Save The Date! Volunteers are working at the Jackson Garden Extravaganza in the Mississippi Trade Mart to provide information and answer questions about the EarthKind roses, Old Garden Roses and general rose culture.  The Jackson Garden Extravaganza is located at the Mississippi Fairgrounds Complex - just east of downtown Jackson at the corner of Pearl and High Streets.  If you plan on shopping at the show this weekend, be sure to drop by and visit with our volunteers.  Volunteers - thank you for your time and commitment to our organization - we couldn't do it without you!  If you would like to sign up for a time slot, a sign-up sheet will be sent to our members soon.  Location:  Mississippi Fairgrounds Complex, 1207 Mississippi Street, Jackson, MS

Those roses don't prune themselves!  This year we're back at the Mississippi Agriculture & Forestry Museum to prune the museum's roses.  Rose pruners, experienced and novices alike, are invited to try out their sheers this day to shape up the museum's roses.  A demo will be offered at 9 a.m. to show newbies how it’s done and the cuttings from these roses are yours to keep!  Don't forget your gloves, pruners, loppers, clippers and saws.  Location:  1150 Lakeland Dr, Jackson, MS 39216


Come join us for a free public workshop on how to grow roses!  We have a full afternoon of wonderful speakers with topics ranging from where to buy roses, what roses to plant for our growing zone, how to plant, fertilize, prune and propagate roses.  For more information, contact Betty Newman at 601-594-6919.  See you there!  Location:  Pearl Community Center, 2040 Old Brandon Road, Pearl, Mississippi.
