by Jeff & Cindy Garrett, Master Rosarians
At the August, 2021, meeting of the Nashville Rose Society, Jeff & Cindy Garrett gave an excellent presentation with tips on growing roses and preparing them for a rose show.
The Garretts moved to their current home on Lake Chickamauga in 1989. That spring they added two rose beds with about 96 plants. Over the years they have continued to develop their landscape to its current capacity of just under 350 roses.
Both Jeff and Cindy are active in the American Rose Society and are Master Rosarians. They and have been honored with the Silver Medal from the Tenarky District of the American Rose Society. They have both also won the Outstanding Consulting Rosarian Award for the Tenarky District. For many years Jeff has been the Tenarky District Roses In Review Coordinator. They are also regional editor’s for the annual Horizon Roses publication.
Jeff and Cindy were kind enough to allow us to post their presentation.
