Easy Rose Care
Teresa Mosher, President, New England Rose Society
Growing roses isn't difficult, if you are employing the correct methods. Teresa Mosher, current president of The New England Rose Society, will review the seasonal needs of roses, including winter protection, pruning different types, planting, fertilizing and choosing the right rose varieties. Photos from her celebrated garden in Methuen, MA (zone 5) will illustrate the presentation.
Teresa Mosher is one of the leading garden and rose consultants in New England. Her passion for flowers, especially roses started as a child when her dad would start seedlings and plant them in the family garden every spring. Even though he worked long hours, he took the time to care for and grow fruits, vegetables and flowers, teaching his family important life lessons in the process. The garden became a place to relax and enjoy life where she and her dad felt most at peace. A native of Methuen, Massachusetts, Teresa is currently the President of the prestigious New England Rose Society and spends her free time as a Horticulture Rose Judge and Consulting Rosarian for the American Rose Society. An author and owner of Purple Roses Publishing, Teresa's love for flowers also drives her to volunteer, consult and teach others to care for them year-round. She truly enjoys sharing her knowledge and passion for gardening with others.
