Due to Coronavirus restrictions, meetings in February through May 2021 will be held using GoTo Meeting.
PRUNING AT THE GARDEN: The traditional pruning demonstrations at the Albuquerque Rose Garden are not possible, but members may be pruning in March.
Albuquerque Rose Society Meetings are held September through November and February through May at 7 p.m. NORMALLY at the Albuquerque Garden Center (see map below). Because of current circumstances, please note that meetings in spring 2021 will be electronic only. We hope to resume in-person meetings in fall 2021.
Each meeting includes a special rose-related program with topics ranging from how to landscape with roses to learning about the hidden stories behind our favorite rose names. A brief business meeting is held afterward.
We do not meet in June, July, and August to allow us to tend our own roses and the roses at the public garden.
Regular meetings resume in September, October and November.
Our December meeting is our Annual Holiday Party held at a local restaurant.
