It all started on Twitter. A monthly chat dedicated to growing roses. This interaction gave me the idea of a radio show to broadcast rose growing info to a wider audience and Rose Chat Radio was born.
Why Rose Chat Radio?
The need to communicate solid information on growing roses to the next generation is essential and Rose Chat Radio helps to fill that need by providing solid rose advice, interesting guests and the latest news from the world of roses!
What We Do
Each week, we have an interesting guest who shares some aspect of rose culture. We advocate good growing practices and fully support the American Rose Society not only by our individual memberships to the national organization, but also at the local level by promoting roses in our own backyards and serving in our own communities and in our local chapter rose societies. We believe it’s grass roots radio at its best…
