Are there any events coming up? plant trades, shows, etc? Seems to be a quiet year so far.
Town of Newburgh Rose Club is hosting the annual convention of the NY District of the American Rose Society on September 7th and 8th in Fishkill. The 7th will be a consulting rosarian school but the 8th is a rose show open to all though there is a $45. fee to register if you want to enter roses.
It will be in the Holiday Inn on Route 9, just north of I-84 and that show should knock your socks off as rose growers from all over the state compete. Should be open to the public around 1 PM though the exhibitors have a deadline of 10:30 AM. There will also be some informative talks in the afternoon.
