Joining a rose society can bring you great rewards and pleasure in
being able to grow beautiful roses. The rose is our national floral emblem. Being able to grow and share a beautiful
bouquet with family, friends and neighbors can be yours. The rose society can teach you how to grow beautiful roses
in your own garden. The secret is all in knowing what to do and when to do it.
The Shenandoah Rose Society now offers memberships to please everyone from youths to beginners to more
experienced individuals. You receive monthly newsletters and there are monthly meetings which you are encouraged
to attend that will provide training and informational programs to help you grow roses. There are social times
and opportunities to visit other member's gardens. The Society has something to offer for the person who knows nothing
about growing roses to the more experienced rosarian.
There are several membership levels for you to choose from.
