Bobbie Reed, from Lawrenceville, Ga., has been growing roses in her garden since 1988. She currently has almost 200 roses, most currently raised in pots. She, along with her husband Don, grow mostly old garden, shrub, mini and mini-flora roses. Their favorites are probably the very fragrant Old Garden roses.
She is a long-time, very active member of the Greater Atlanta Rose Society and the American Rose Society. She is an American Rose Society Consulting Rosarian, (an ambassador for roses) as well as a Master Rosarian. She is also an ARS Horticulture and Arrangement Judge. She has written many articles and submitted photographs for many rose newsletters and local and national publications.

Her presentation at Friends First Friday will focus on the fragrances of roses, old and new.
