    The Women In My Rose Garden - Ann Chapman

    in Gardening

    “I am not an armchair gardener. For the last forty years of my life I have broken my back, my fingernails and sometimes my heart in the practical pursuit of my favourite occupation”. - Vita Sackville West


    Ann Chapman is a celebrated rosarian from New Zealand who is the author of several books on roses including "Women In My Rose Garden". About 20 years ago, she and her husband purchased Trinity Farm that they transformed into the largest organic, no spray rose gardens in New Zealand with over 1500 roses under cultivation.


    Many of our best-loved heritage roses are named after women and in Ann Chapman book "The Women In My Rose Garden" she explores the lives and stories behind the evocative names. We may be familiar with Mary Queen of Scots, Amy Robsart and Jeanne d'Arc, but who were Adelaide d'Orléans, Nancy Steen and Nur Mahal? Among the 35 women described here are serene queens, duchesses and aristocrats, courageous heroines and pioneers, as well as the passionate gardeners who contributed much to the cultivation and preservation of the roses named for each one.

    Dr. Mark Windham - University Of Tennessee Knoxville - Rose Rosette Research

    in Gardening

    Dr. Mark Windham, Professor, University of Tennessee Knoxville (Department of entomology and Plant Pathology), will discuss his research into Rose Rosette Disease (RRD) and other projects, such as identifying disease resistant varieties and mechanisms of roses. His interests include how plant resistant mechanisms interact with environmental and water stresses.



    The American Rose Society Research Endowment Trust has selected Dr. Windham to head a three-year study beginning in 2012 concerning the management of RRD. The objectives are to determine 1) how rosarians can manage RRD in their gardens, and 2) what best management practices for RRD can be developed, other than eliminating bushes with symptoms. The Trustees have identified Rose Rosette Disease as the greatest threat to the future of commercial and recreational growth and enjoyment of roses.
