Welcome to the Greater Palm Beach Rose Society

Welcome. You have found the website of the local rose society based in Palm Beach County, Florida. We would love to help you grow beautiful roses.

The Greater Palm Beach Rose Society serves the South Florida counties of Broward, Palm Beach and Martin.

Our Society is very active year round with garden walks, shows, workshops and many other events. Meetings start  at 7:30pm at Mounts Botanical Garden located at 531 N. Military Trail in West Palm  Beach.  Visitors and guests are always welcome. We do take a summer siesta where we do not have monthly regular meetings. This allows us to rejuvenate.

Members of The Greater Palm Beach Rose Society enjoy growing roses and the opportunity to be with other rose growers eager to share their hobby. Whether it is discussing growing roses at a meeting, showing and sharing roses at a Rose Show, or working together to maintain public rose gardens, GPBRS provides a unique atmosphere to socialize with other rose growers.

Monthly meetings with speakers and demonstrations provide guests and members a means to continue learning about rose care. Each meeting has an educational program with time for questions and answers.

The Rose Petal, our newsletter, provides timely articles on rose care each month instructing us when to plant, how and when to prune, how to take rose cuttings, which fertilizer to use for the different times of the growing season, selecting a rose to grow, plus articles by members sharing their garden experiences.

Annual dues are $18 or $25.00 for contributing members. The Membership period runs from January to December. Any new or renewed membership received in the rest of 2021 will include 2022 membership. Please use the membership form Download

Members come from all age groups and reside in Broward, Palm Beach and Martin counties.
