October 25, 2008
  • Fall Rose Show Cancelled
    The Board of Directors of the Houston Rose Society has decided to cancel the 2008 Fall Rose Show because of damage done to the gardens of most exhibitors both here and in the Golden Triangle area because of Hurricane Ike.

    Many long-time exhibitors reported plants stripped of leaves, broken canes and uprooted bushes because of the storm. A survey revealed that we would not have enough roses for a decent show. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this decision.

April 4, 5 and 6, 2008
  • HRS to Have Arrangements Contest at 2008 Home & Garden Show
    The Houston Rose Show is proud to be part of the Home and Garden Show at the George R. Brown Convention Center on April 4, 5 and 6, 2008. Because it is a little early to have an ARS sponsored rose show, we have decided to have a massive arrangement's contest. We are offering two cash prizes of $100 each. One prize will be awarded by ARS Arrangements Judge Robin Hough based on the American Rose Society criterion for arrangements. The second $100 prize will be awarded to the arrangement receiving the most votes from attendees at the Home and Garden Show. The arrangement that is selected by Robin Hough for the first $100 prize is ineligible for the popular vote prize.

    So, if you have ever thought about entering an arrangement, here is your chance to win a $100 prize. All arrangement materials must be furnished by the exhibitor, but, because of the early spring date, we will not have the requirement that the roses come from your garden. Any rose, from a florist or flower vendor, or even a grocery store, can be used. For this contest, the standard is about the beauty of the arrangement, not about growing the roses used in the arrangement.

    The roses may be entered from 9 am to 11 am on Saturday, April 5th. You must pick up your arrangement between 3 pm and 5 pm on Sunday, April 6th. If you do not pick up your arrangement, it will be disposed of at the end of the show.

    Our Grand Prix:

    At the April, May, June, (not July), August, September and October meetings of the Houston Rose Society we have a small Rose Show that we call the Grand Prix. Members are encouraged to bring blooms from their gardens and learn how to exhibit before the big shows. This is a fun show, which is designed as a learning experience. You will learn how to fill out a tag, how to position your roses for best effect and how to spot common mistakes before you make them at a sponsored show.

    Points are kept and winners are announced at the end of the meeting. At the December Christmas Party the winners of each year's Grand Prix are announced. The main benefit of the Grand Prix is that it is a way to learn the art of exhibiting in a very relaxed atmosphere. Plus, all the members at the meetings get to see excellent examples of roses they grow, or want to grow. Come and give it a try.

    The 2002 Spring Show

    The 2002 Fall Rose Show of the Houston Rose Society was scheduled for Saturday, April 13, 2002, at Willowbrook Mall.Unfortunately, a late February cold front nipped many area roses. A survey of our members revealed that most of us would not have many blooms by April 13th, the day scheduled for the Show at Willowbrook Mall.
    Therefore, we decided to cut back the show. We did not have the traditional rose contest/judging, but still sat up for the public to sell 750 cut blooms that were delivered. Also, Jack Walter of Kimbrew-Walter Roses supplied us with miniature rose plants to sell to the public. It was a successful event, and we got to meet many members of the public and talk to them about roses.
