Springtime Preparation

Open Garden is coming and volunteers are getting ready by primping the roses.  January and February were cold and often stormy this year, giving us time to get ready for the spring bloom.  Please plan to visit the garden to see early blooms in mid to late March and visit again in April and May to see the garden in its glory.

A "Primping Party" will be held on Saturday, April 6 to give a final touch to the roses.  All are welcome to join in the fun from 9:00 to noon.

Open Garden will be held on Saturday, April 13 and continuing to Sunday, April 14:

Remembering Barbara

It was fitting to celebrate Barbara Oliva's life in the Historic Rose Garden that she worked in for so long and also fitting the roses received a much needed drizzling rain on her day.

Historic Rose Garden

The Historic Rose Garden includes more than 500 old garden roses from a variety of sources and sites.  The collection includes some unique roses, not found anywhere else.  Click here for a  catalog of roses in the garden.
