A Gardening Club with a Difference

  • Are you interested in various aspects of gardening?
  • Are you a newly-retired person who has dreamed for years of spending more time gardening?
  • Are you new resident of the Barrie/Simcoe County area?
  • Do you enjoy others’ roses but think you can’t grow them in these parts? Or that they are too much work?
  • Perhaps the Huronia Rose Society would be of interest to you.
  • We all do enjoy growing roses, but we enjoy many other kinds of gardening, too. Companion plantings help give colour all summer.
  • We have speakers on general gardening topics as well rose-growing .
  • We share information on the easiest roses to grow, that are disease and insect resistant so they require minimum care.
  • Our Members’ Garden Visit has proved to be very popular, a social event to get to know each other better.
  • We do have a rose show at the end of June where one can see roses one may want to grow.
  • We have an annual rose sale in May offering hardy, disease and insect resistant rose bushes for sale to members and the public, which are Ontario grown and ideal to our climate. Go to the Annual Rose Sale tab at the top of the page.
