Welcome

Bengal Rose Society

Bengal Rose Society was formed in 1980 to spread the knowledge of rose culture in the plains of West Bengal under the inspiration of Late Swami Gouriswarananda, (Ramamoy Maharaj) of Jairambati and Late Dr. Sivaprasad Bandyopadhyay.

Bengal (including parts of Jharkhand, during British India) has had a tradition of rose culture and breeding and is closely connected with the history of modern roses. The stud china roses which brought remontancy in rose, took refuge at Indian Botanic Garden, Sibpur (now Acharya Jagadish Chandra Bose Indian Botanic Garden), before being shipped to Europe. In earlier times rose growing was confined among the elites of the society, but Bengal Rose Society members have developed newer techniques by which common people can enjoy the culture of roses grown in pots-with or without soil.
