RSV membership brings many benefits…
MEETING SEMINARS, GROUP DISCUSSIONS, SOCIETY
Free admission to monthly meetings with talks by noted garden and rose experts on a myriad of fascinating and informative topics of both practical and inspirational interest to the rose lover. Bring your roses and take in the gorgeous sight and scent of roses others have brought. Meet noted Australian rosarians and breeders. Take part in quizzes and light-hearted humour. Swap rose culture notes, imbibe the skills and wisdom of fellow gardeners and contribute to the sum of knowledge. You will have the opportunity to approach the most expert of rosarians for advice on your roses! A communally contributed supper along with pleasant conversation tops the evening off.
Access to the Society’s extensive library of rose and other related books. The books are updated regularly with the latest publications. A professional Library Technician looks after the library and is available to help you with your choices.
FREE SPRING ROSE SHOW ENTRY
A ticket will be sent to you by post. The highlight of the rose year to jot in bold letters in your diary! You might like to gift a friend with the ticket and then go along together. An exciting day out for gardening buddies- there are a multitude of beautiful blooms to swoon over, and delicious devonshire teas organised by our queen of hedonistic repast, Elizabeth, and her crack team of helpers, when it’s time to relax and recharge.
ELIGIBILITY TO EXHIBIT
Enter your roses in the Spring Show! The more, the merrier. We want every member to have the pleasure of exhibiting, whether beginner or seasoned veteran. The more of us participate and share our roses with each other and the public, the more we can be assured of the continuation and flourishing of our beloved and venerable Rose Society, that celebrates and promulgates so much enjoyment and beauty in the name of the rose.
ROSE SOCIETY JOURNALS
These beautifully designed and expertly edited journals, full of interesting and informative articles concerning everything rose and rose society-related, will arrive in your postbox. Absolutely collectible.
At least 20 Neutrog products are available at prices that may be less than half what you’d pay retail. Available are organically based general and specialist fertilisers for roses and other garden plants, soil conditoners and even books.
ACCESS TO THE ONLINE MEMBERS’ ZONE
Here, you can read The Rose News online in full, magnifiable, glossy colour. We’d like to do more! This part of the site is a work in progress. What would you love to see in your privileged access Members Only Zone? Suggestions and contributions welcome.
How about the gift of a MEMBERSHIP in our Rose Society of Victoria?
Material things as presents are nice of course, such as perhaps a bunch of roses. But beautiful as this ephemeral gift may be, consider by comparison the benefits over time that the experience of a Rose Society membership will bestow! It brings you into the contact with a group of the most knowledgeable and dedicated rosarians in the state.
RSV membership brings knowledge, good company and inspiration. In short, happiness.
