Rose Day offers hands on help to growers
Te Awamutu Rose Society will be holding a Rose Day this Saturday from 10am-3pm at Mitre 10 Mega, offering hands-on help and advice from local experienced rose growers on selecting, pruning and planting roses. New roses are available now in store for planting and all members of the Te Awamutu Rose Society receive a 10 per cent discount on roses purchased on Saturday. Anyone can join up on the day and receive their discount immediately. President Diana Jones was delighted at this month's meeting to award newsletter editor Suzy Hall the trophy for winning the Best Small Newsletter of the Year announced at the National Rose Conference AGM which was held last month. The local rose society meetings are held on the first Tuesday of the month at the Burchell Pavilion next to i-Site on Gorst Ave.
