Guest Speaker July 2018 - George McPhail -Everything coming up Roses
George MacPhail has spent 35 years growing roses and doesn’t
just grow fragrant rose gardens; he
creates beautiful new flowers. While the fruits of his labour may seem magical,
they are really the result of tremendous
patience, hard work and endless trial and error.
MacPhail has bred varieties of roses that are not unique, but that he claims are
disease-resistant and hardy enough to survive Nova Scotia’s tough climate.
You can find MacPhail’s roses growing in hundreds of gardens
around Nova Scotia.
