A week and a bit away we have Mike Roach from Roach’s Nurseries in the Waikato coming to talk to us about the roses he grows.
Roach’s Nurseries is the largest rose grower in northern Waikato and is a well-established family business owned by Mike Roach. Mike’s grandfather, Thomas Roach, started the business in 1924, and when he retired three of his six sons carried on with the nursery, growing over 100,000 roses and about 70,000 fruit trees. Mike Roach became the third generation to have owned the business when he took over from his father in the mid 1970s.
Roach’s Roses is now located at 150 Schollum Rd, Eureka which is halfway between Hamilton and Morrinsville.
We’re very excited to hear Mike talk and hope as many of you as possible can join us for the afternoon.
