The Society’s Spring Exhibition and Rose Show will be held on the weekend of 7-8 November, at the Wesley Centre in Forrest. Members of the public welcome.
The Society was formed in 1929. Initially it aimed to foster the spirit of gardening in Australia’s very new national capital so that Canberra might become a ‘garden city’. The Society has been involved in many activities over the years including: seed distribution to members, planning the National Rose Garden, garden and flower competitions, public talks and floral displays, as well as the present day Shows, Bruce Demonstration Garden, and production of The Canberra Gardener.
The Society will hold rose and fruit tree pruning demonstrations on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 July. Members of the public welcome. For more information, go to Upcoming Events below. Other activities are also resuming, with an Information Evening to be held in August.
The Society runs four flower shows each year. The Spring Exhibition and Rose Show is the final one for the calendar year. The Show will be held in the Lancaster Hall at the Wesley Uniting Church Centre in Forrest. Opening hours are Saturday noon-5pm and Sunday 11.30am- 3.15pm. There will be the usual plant stall operated by the Society and afternoon tea can be purchased on both days as well as morning tea on Sunday.Find out more »
