Sites to See

Here’s some sites we visit. We like them, you might too. Remember though these are sites unto themselves and TCRC is not responsible for the content of these sites.

Rose Societies

American Rose Society This is the website for TCRC’s parent organization.  A wealth of information and photos.

North Central District Rose Societies General information for all rose societies in North Dakota, South Dakota, Wisconsin and Minnesota

Milwaukee Rose Society Our neighbors to the east…A very nice site by our friend Jan. Good information if you’re traveling that direction and want to include roses on your sight seeing adventures.

Lake Superior Rose Society Our neighbors to the north…A new site that’s growing every day. Keep checking this one, it’s going to be good for us northerners!

Rose Sources

Wisconsin Roses
Owned by Steve Singer, Wisconsin Roses provides quality bare-root maiden roses for exhibitors and rose enthusiasts.

Sam Kedem’s Nursery is a local Hastings, MN grower. Besides wonderful roses, there’s a large selection of perennials. Take a look here, then take a drive to see it in person.

Nor’East Miniature Roses is located in Massachusetts and is a great source for minis by mail.

Spring Valley Roses offers a wide variety of roses, from Old Garden roses to new Shrub roses developed in Canada, Germany and the U.S. They specialize in growing hardy roses that can survive the severe winters of Northwestern Wisconsin without protection.

Heirloom Roses A great company with a large selection of roses. If you’re a TCRC member and were at the 1998 annual meeting you’ll remember Louise Clements was a wonderful speaker. I understand their gardens are amazing so if you’re in the area you should take a look. The website has some photos to get you started.

Help me find  an online Web database of Roses, Clematis and Peonies.  Much of the website is free to use; however the advanced features like rose lineage requires a membership.

rosemania “Your online rose experience”. A good section for beginner questions and a rose growing forum has a lot of possibilities.

Rose Exhibitors The website of the American Rose Exhibitors Society, by Bob Martin

Old Garden Roses and Beyond by Paul Barden A beautiful site dedicated to roses of the 19th century and before. A wonderful site to get lost in, and not in a–can’t find links–way, because it’s designed very well, but in a–I could grab a cup of tea and spend all day here looking and reading and learning–way. A must-see!

Northern Gardener blog Mary, a freelance writer/editor for Northern Gardener magazine keeps us up to date on what’s happening in the garden.
