SDRS Consulting Rosarian Volunteers

ARS Accredited Consulting Rosarians

These American Rose Society Consulting Rosarians (CR) are members of the San Diego Rose Society. They may be contacted free-of-charge to ask rose-related questions. For additional lists of CRs in your specific area, visit the  ARS or the Pacific Southwest District websites.

The American Rose Society has a network of Consulting Rosarians (CR). These expert rosarians have attended CR school and taken classes that train them how to provide advice on various aspects of rose culture such as rose selection, planting roses, fertilizing roses, rose diseases, and the proper use of pesticides. At the end of the training, they must pass a test. In addition, Consulting Rosarians can advise about other rose problems that a gardener might encounter. A list of Consulting Rosarians, their contact information and location is shown below.

Master Rosarians (MR) listed on this page are Consulting Rosarians who have been recognized by the American Rose Society through a nomination process as individuals who have provided outstanding active CR performance for a period of at least 10 years and who have exhibited a willingness to continue as a CR.

If you have a question about your roses and would like to receive an answer by e-mail please feel free to contact any one of our Consulting Rosarians or Master Rosarians (MR) nearest you.
