NRSA President Paul Hains

Welcome to The National Rose Society of Australia’s (NRSA) Website. We have over 3,000 members nationally. Most rose society members have between 2 and 20 rose bushes and love the experience of producing these magnificent flowers in their gardens. Of course, there are also experts on hand who may grow hundreds of rose bushes and can provide advice for other members on all aspects of rose growing.

Being a member of a Rose Society introduces you to visiting private gardens belonging to members, catching up with like-minded gardening friends, learning more about rose care, and many social activities that may even take you around the world.

I wish to thank Kelvin Trimper, Immediate Past President, for the work he has done while in office. This has included leadership in the development of a bid to hold a WFRS Convention in Australia in 2021, and work to re-establish the Rose Society of Tasmania.

The NRSA is in excellent shape and we are seeking ideas for new projects and initiatives. I welcome any suggestions.

The next NRSA AGM will be held on the Gold Coast in Queensland, from 2nd to 5th October 2015 (download via link at beginning of message), and I encourage all members to attend. The Gold Coast Rose Society have been working hard to create an event that will show off the Gold Coast as well as demonstrating that great roses can be grown in subtropical climates. You can fly straight into the Gold Coast from most Australian centres and from New Zealand.

What is The National Rose Society of Australia?

The National Rose Society of Australia was formed on 4th November 1972, when a meeting of representatives from each of the State Societies adopted a constitution. As a result, the newly formed national body qualified for membership to the World Federation of Rose Societies.

Since then we have grown from strength to strength. Our objectives are to encourage, improve and extend the cultivation of the rose in Australia by means of exhibitions, publications and co-ordination of all State Rose Societies and by other means as the Society shall from time to time decree.
