Bengal Rose Society
Bengal Rose Society was formed in 1980 to spread the knowledge of rose culture in the plan of West Bengal under the inspiration of Late Swami Gorisaranananda, Maharaj of Jairambati and Late Dr. Sibaprasad Bandyopahayay.
Bengal has a tradition of rose culture and closely connected with the history of modern roses. The stud china roses which brought remontancy in rose, took refuge at Calcutta Botanical Garden, Sibpur, before being shipped to Europe. In earlier time rose growing was to the elites of the society, but Bengal Rose Society members have developed newer techniquies of roses grown in pots-with or without soil.
