The monthly meeting of the Houston Rose Society this month is on Thursday, November 14, 2019 at the St. Andrews Episcopal Church, 1819 Heights Blvd., Houston, TX 77008. Admission is free. The public is welcome.

Do you have a space that would be perfect for a beautiful rose if only there were a planting bed there? Whether you just want to take advantage of a sunny spot, need an accent near your front door, or might want to downsize in the future, join us Thursday evening, November 14, to hear Donald Burger present, “Growing Healthy Roses in Containers.” It will be fun and informative!

Donald Burger is a Master Consulting Rosarian, a past president and current board member of the Houston Rose Society, a beekeeper, and a long-time gardener is the Houston area. Along with Maria Trevino, Donald grows some 100 roses in his Victorian garden in the Heights. He joined the Houston Rose Society in the 1980’s when he bought his first home. It had a bed of thirteen roses, and he needed to learn how to care for them. He and Maria have been growing roses ever since.

When you sign in at the Rose Society meeting, be sure to get your free raffle ticket for the door prize drawing.

To participate in “Grow and Tell”, bring a rose or roses to put on your table and tell us what you love about them. If you don’t know the name of a rose, perhaps another rosarian at the meeting can help you identify it. Consulting Rosarian of the month will be Susan Kelly, with gardening tips for November.
