Golden Triangle Rose Society














April 2

GTRS Monthly Meeting.


The GTRS meets each month on the first Thursday at 6 p.m. in the Tyrrell Park Garden Center, Beaumont, Texas.


Mike Jones will bring our program at the next regular GTRS meeting on April 2, 2015.  Mike has a great speaking voice and always has a good message.  His message on this evening will be entitled “From the Garden to the Show Tables”.


What a perfect message at the perfect time!  Mike will walk us through our gardens, tell us what to look for in using our roses in their perfect place.  He will emphasize the importance of stem size, the importance of matching or harmonizing colors, the proper places for “full” roses or those with pin-point centers, selecting Floribunda forms, etc.


He will also remind you that you don’t absolutely have to have stems from here to there to win at the show.  Short stems are perfect for floaters, rose in a picture frame, English Box, Sherry’s Arrangements, etc.

Bring your notepads.  I can’t wait. Mike.
