So, are you a rose lover? Or maybe just getting there? Or maybe you just have a mystery rose that came with your house, that seems to have some promise? 

Well, welcome to the San Diego Rose Society (SDRS)! We invite you to take a tour of this web site and hopefully attend one of our monthly meetings! We are all rose enthusiasts and enjoy a sense of community, camaraderie and the desire to to assist each other and the public in general, with the pursuit of rose knowledge. 

If you are just getting started, you might be interested in the 'Beginner Tutorials' articles here. Or maybe you want to check out our Recommended Links to other web pages regarding Roses. If you attend one of our monthly meetings, we will hook you up with one of our numerous American Rose Society Certified Consulting Rosarians, volunteers who can address your specific questions. Lastly, joining the SDRS as a member entitles you to many benefits, including a monthly issue of our informative Rose Ramblings newsletter. However we can help you, let us know. We want you to know that there are plenty of people who love roses - you do not have to be alone in your hobby and passion!
