The Greater Palm Beach Rose Society Founded in 1970 has been promoting Rose growing in South Florida for over 40 years. We serve 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. 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.
The GPBRS 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.
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. They are held on the fourth Monday of each month except May, June, July, August and December.
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.
Annual dues are $18 or $25.00 for contributing members. You will receive an informative monthly newsletter, The Rose Petal, via e-mail and you will also enjoy other great benefits such as discounts at local garden stores. The Membership period runs from January to December. Any new or renewed membership received in the rest of 2021 will include 2022 membership. The membership form is an editable PDF. You can fill it out and send the printed copy with your check to:
