Let’s Talk Roses (date and time varies by branch).


A classic floral shrub that has been grown and bred for hundreds of years. Many of us dream of having a beautiful garden we are proud of with stunning roses. But how do you look after them? How do you prune them, when should they be fed and what roses are best for your place?

Join the experienced members from the Auckland Rose Society for an hour of information covering all these topics and more.

Up Coming Events

It’s great to see Covid-19 restrictions are now able to be eased, well done Aotearoa New Zealand.

While we have been in lock-down the Rose Society committee have been busy planning and organising some wonderful events.

  • Our next event (6th June) is the much-anticipated talk by Dianne Duncan on her visit to the Chelsea Flower show last year.
  • Followed by a Pruning Demonstration at the Parnell Rose gardens (27th June), come and see how it’s done.
  • Then a Rose Care Workshop (12th July) hosted by the Auckland Horticultural Council and presented by the Auckland Rose Society.
  • Keep a look out as we update the Website and Facebook page, we have events organised every month for the rest of the year and beyond.

We are all looking forward to catching up with you and sharing the love of roses.

Happy gardening.

Covid- 19 Alert Level 2

As a country we will move to Level 2 on Thursday. The restriction being that events cannot number more than 10 persons for at least 2 more weeks, therefore the May Monthly Meeting and AGM have been postponed until the 6th of June.

(UPDATE – PLEASE NOTE THE START TIME HAS BEEN CHANGED TO 1.30PM.)

In line with the Covid-19  protocol, we will have a register for people to sign on arrival  and will require everyone to maintain a safe social distance; unfortunately we will not be able to serve afternoon tea.

The committee is looking forward to catching up with you all soon, and have some interesting guest speakers planned for the upcoming Monthly Meetings.

In the meantime keep safe and well, and happy gardening.
