The tour promises action packed presentations to educate the masses about the joys of growing roses with no chemicals.

Passionate about seeing gardeners grow roses sustainably, America’s Favorite Rose Gardener, Chris VanCleave has teamed up with Brian Puckett, Curator of the first municipal Earth Kind rose trial to launch the Rose Kings Sustainability Tour. This national tour is geared towards teaching the public how to grow roses without using harmful chemicals. Through fun and interactive presentations, this dynamic duo from Helena Alabama will show hands on how to select, plant and care for roses in the garden.

“Consumers today are often confused and ultimately disappointed when it comes to growing roses”, says Chris VanCleave, known around the country as America’s Favorite Rose Gardener. During the tour, Brian and I will share our extensive knowledge about what types of roses can be grown in your area for maximum color impact without using harmful chemicals in your garden.” said VanCleave.

“The need for practical information on sustainable gardening is in full demand and the VanCleave/Puckett partnership is just what our attendees are looking for. Their easy style and welcoming manner demystified growing roses, making it fun and easy for gardeners of every age. We are super excited to have them kick off their national sustainability tour at the Birmingham Home Show” says Mari Franco, Show manager with Marketplace Events, producer of the Birmingham Home Show.

“Innovations in rose breeding have now produced roses that are virtually disease free and they bloom like mad”, says Brian Puckett, curator of the United States’ first municipal Earth Kind rose trial. During the tour, we’ll reveal the various types of roses, their growth habits as well as the level of care they need so people can make informed decisions for their gardens.” Puckett said.

The tour kicks off in February and will make stops in Birmingham, Chicago and then we’ll be heading out west.  We’re booking additional dates every week, says Puckett.
