Sorry for the short notice, but if you are in the general area this weekend it promises to be quite an event. Liz

The Hamilton/Burlington Rose Society is holding this unique rose show at the Royal Botanical Gardens, 680 Plains Road West, Burlington, Ontario. All are welcome to exhibit roses, with entries restricted to Canadian cultivars, (bred by Canadians in Canada).

Each hybridizer will have their own section in the show with each of their cultivars represented in individual classes within that section. We forcast that most entries will be Agriculture Canada roses, but we expect to see many historic roses from the prairies and many new selections from local hybridizers.

Entries will be received between 7:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. on Friday, June 20th and from 7:00 a.m. until 10:15 a.m. on Saturday, June 21. The rose show is open to the public from 1:30 p.m. until 5:30 p.m. Saturday, June 21, and from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Sunday, June 22. All rose societies are invited to attend with the purpose of selling memberships, and fundraising through the sale of roses and rose related items. Palatine Fruit and Roses will be attending and selling roses during the show.

The Royal Botanical Gardens will also be holding its Rose Festival concurrent with the All-Canadian Rose Show which will give the public the opportunity to view the new renovations to their rose gardens.

Not only will this be a historic show, it will be a great opportunity to learn, shop, and network with other rosarians who will be coming from as far away as Edmonton and Montreal.

All questions and comments are welcome. Please feel free to contact Mark Disero, Show Chairman, at or 519-720-0067
