About RSV meetings

We love our monthly meetings; being in a room with like-minded enthusiasts and experts. Here is a chance to get real, practical advice and instruction from experienced rosarians. Every possible topic of interest relating to rose husbandry and appreciation, is covered.

All that with plenty of laughter and fun and a delish supper.

At most meetings a mini rose show competition is held where members may practice their show bench skills and new members may learn how to exhibit roses and get on-the-spot advice from the experts.

Bring your roses and share their glory with all.

Although meetings are ‘members only’ events, visitors are very welcome to come along and dip a toe in the rosy water. Feel free to bring a friend.

Tuesday 14th of March 8pm

Craig Castree – The Importance of Good Soil

There is a revolution in horticulture as new science shows us how to nurture and build microbiologically active and fertile soils instead of degrading them by overuse of mineral fertilisers and repeated destructive ploughing. Craig will explain the biology, and show members how to achieve rich, living soils in our own gardens.

This meeting will take place in the Craft Room at the Mount Waverley Community Centre

 

Tuesday 11th of April 8pm

Joel Barton – Felco

Joel will inform members with a demonstration of the range of pruning tools Felco offers rosarians and gardeners generally.

Felco supports the Rose Society of Victoria with donations of valuable prizes at our major rose shows each year, and the RSV is pleased to make this time to promote these quality products.

This meeting will take place in the Craft Room at the Mount Waverley Community Centre
