We’re helping Tacoma gardeners grow more roses.

Our expert Rosarians can help you grow a fuller and more colorful rose garden in one year.

Our monthly in-person member meetings include how-to programs, guest speakers, & colorful handouts. In addition we have a newsletter, and valuable hands-on lessons in the Pt. Defiance Garden.

If your rose bushes are not giving you many large blooms any more, then learning about fertilizing, soil health, & pruning will certainly re-energize your rose garden.

And we can show you how to grow bigger roses, too

  • Finding roses for NW gardens
