    New and Renewed Rose Beds

Besides water, the soil and construction of your rose bed are the second most important items required to grow beautiful roses. January is a perfect time to build a new rose bed or modify and upgrade the nutrients in your existing rose bed.

Please join us to learn from Donald Burger how to prepare our beds to grow healthy roses. Donald has been practicing law for over 40 years in Texas and is a Master Rosarian and Past President of our Rose Society. He currently grows over 100 varieties of roses and serves as a Director on our Board along with maintaining our website.

Donald has many interests besides gardening with roses which include beekeeping, model trains, and pond water gardening to list a few. Donald has provided programs and written articles on many rose gardening topics including irrigation systems, chemical safety, disease resistant roses, etc. His website at has a wealth of information about gardening and his other hobbies and interests that you can access. Please join us in person at St. Andrews Episcopal Church, 1819 Heights Blvd., Houston, TX; 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm on Thursday, January 13, 2022.
