Malaysia Rose Lovers Society (MRLS) or Persatuan Pencinta Ros Malaysia was given birth on January 26, 2012 when the Registrar of Society, Malaysia, approved the application put forward by (number of people signed the document – check later as file is at the office) a month prior to that date.
This humble beginning saw the formation of an Ad-Hoc Organizing Committee of whom later on scurrying past all-odds to have MRLS takes its first flight, and took its first flight it was when the Organizing Committee tirelessly campaigning for memberships via its non-official Facebook Group by the name Malaysian Rose Society.
Aims to be a pitch where all rose-lovers and home gardeners alike – in Malaysia - to converge and exchange notes, MRLS vows to stay educational, as a non-profit seeking organization and dedicating itself to the enjoyment of roses and exploration of all possibilities of having English roses growing comfortably in the tropics. Educationally, MRLS hopes to have more and more Malaysians to migrate from the notion that the biggest challenge in gardening is rose growing to Malaysians can grow roses.
Thus, MRLS tagline reads: Malaysians can grow roses.
If you enjoy growing roses, this is the place you should be with all other members who are home gardeners enjoying growing roses and wanting to expand their knowledge in rose culture. So far, members get their adrenalin pumps when photos or their roses posted on the MRS Facebook Wall are admired by other members.
As time goes by, there will be many many workshops, seminars, garden events and rose shows across Malaysia for members to participate and get benefits from.
Alternatively, members could also refer to MRLS quarterly newsletter called “Petals”, which is devoted exclusively to roses and rose culture.
MRLS is headquartered at No 100, Jalan Sepah Puteri 5/18, Seri Utama, Kota Damansara, 47810 Petaling Jaya.
Malaysia Rose Lovers Society exists to promote the culture and appreciation of rose growing in Malaysia through education (and research) to members as well as the public.
In our pursuit to proof that Malaysians can grow roses, we aspire to be a centre for Malaysian rose lovers to seek information and be educated about roses and challenges in growing roses.
