Long Island Rose Society Welcomes You
We have programs, garden events or parties once a month from March to December each year. Our members have an opportunity to exhibit their roses during most of these meetings. During the summer months we meet at public gardens on Saturdays. In the spring and fall we meet at the Plainview/Old Bethpage public library Friday nights from 7 to 9pm. The library is located at 999 Old Country Rd., Plainview, Long Island, NY.
Members receive newsletters for each of these 10 months, not only to keep them informed about our events, but also to keep them abreast about the latest in roses and rose gardening.
The Long Island Rose Society began in the late '50's and is affiliated with the American Rose Society.
Each June we hold our annual rose show at the Planting Fields Arboretum.
Our members are knowledgeable about the latest in rose care and rose varieties, especially for people concerned about using fewer chemicals or going completely organic. We also share information about upcoming rose shows, rose garden tours and other rose related events that occur around the country and the world.
