CONSULTING ROSARIANS

Several members of the Albuquerque Rose Society are recognized by the American Rose Society as Consulting Rosarians.  These members hold this title because they are active members of the society, are very knowledgeable about rose culture, and are willing to share that knowledge.  Any one of these members will be happy to answer your questions about growing better roses in our Albuquerque area.
