October 7 & 8, 2017 
at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee NASHVILLE, TN.

The Nashville Rose Society will hold its annual Fall Rose Show on October 7 and 8 at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee. Admission is FREE to the public from 1:00 to 4:30 PM on Saturday October 7 th and from 11:00 AM to 4:30 PM on Sunday October 8th .

Over 30 of the most accomplished exhibiting rosarians from across Tennessee, Kentucky and Alabama will compete for awards in multiple categories - from hybrid teas, floribundas and miniatures to climbers, shrub roses and old garden roses – displaying hundreds of roses in a variety of colors and fragrances. There will be a competition for best rose arrangement as well.

On each day of the show, at 2:00 PM, a Nashville Rose Society Consulting Rosarian will conduct a FREE workshop on the “Basics of Growing Roses”, designed to introduce rose care to the beginner or novice. Come and learn how to properly prepare your soil, when and how to prune, as well as proven techniques for fertilizing and protecting roses from damaging insects and diseases. The Nashville Rose Society will provide each attendee at the workshops with a complimentary packet about growing beautiful roses in Tennessee.

“The Nashville Rose Society is excited to hold our annual Fall Rose Show at Belmont University and invite the public to attend. It’s an opportunity for us to share our passion for growing roses with our Middle Tennessee neighbors. Roses have a reputation of being “fussy” and challenging to grow. I hope folks will come to the show to be inspired and to learn that really anyone can grow beautiful roses”, said Ron Daniels, President of The Nashville Rose Society.

The Rose Show will be held in the Gabhart Student Center, rooms A & B, on the campus of Belmont University, located at 2002 Belmont Blvd. Nashville, TN. Parking is free. For a map of the campus, visit belmont.edu.
