Welcome to the Greater Toronto Rose & Garden Society
Celebrating 35 years in 2014
Come Bloom with Us
If you would like information about growing better roses in the Toronto area, please click on "Newsletter".
Our guide for growing roses is there.
Our society is dedicated to promoting the love of growing and enjoying roses.
Our members range from novice gardeners to experienced judges and exhibitors, all of whom are happy to talk about their favorite flower, the rose. With so many roses to choose from, it can be frustrating. Our members will share their knowledge, and help you find the perfect roses for your garden. Come to a meeting and let someone share their "love of roses" with you. We hope you will enjoy our site.
