The Nashville Rose Society will hold its Annual Rose Show on September 28 & 29, 2019, at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee. Admission and parking are both FREE to the public from 1:00 to 4:30 PM on Saturday September 28th and from 11:00 AM to 4:30 PM on Sunday September 29th.
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 shrub roses and old garden roses – displaying hundreds of absolutely beautiful roses in a variety of colors and fragrances. There will be a competition for best rose arrangements 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. Everyone attending the workshops will receive a complimentary packet of information and tips about growing beautiful roses in Tennessee. After each workshop, guided tours will be available of the Belmont’s two spectacular rose gardens – the original Belmont Rose Garden, which now contains over 200 roses of 70 different varieties, as well as the new Adelicia Acklen Rose Garden, which contains some of the same rose varieties Adelicia grew back in the 1860’s when she occupied the mansion.
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. Click here for a map of the campus.
