PERFECT PARTNERS

RIFGC is thrilled to be coordinating with RIBA in a fresh and exciting partnership of new opportunities. Working with the hundreds of students that participate in the Home Show perfectly parallels our outreach and education efforts over the past 88 years. Sharing our passion and love for design, the environment, and horticulture has always been our mission. At the RI Home and Garden Show we are able to do that in a relevant, inspiring, and meaningful way.

Mike and Angelina Chute: Six Simple Steps to Successful Rose Gardening

Saturday, April 7 | 1:00 - 1:45PM

It’s easy to grow beautiful roses in your home garden once you know how. Six Simple Steps to Successful Rose Gardening is one of our most popular programs because it appeals to every gardener who wants to successfully grow roses. It explains everything you need to know in six easy-to-follow steps that take the mystery out of rose gardening. We include plenty of tips and personal anecdotes from over twenty years of rose gardening experience that demonstrate how easy it is to grow great roses.

We will be available to sign copies of our books: Roses for New England: A Guide to Sustainable Rose Gardening and Rose Gardening Season by Season: A Journal for Passionate Gardeners after the program.
