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:

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.

We're propagating this rose. A unique seedling that appeared in our garden about ten years ago, it continuously bears clusters of single flowers with a strong spicy fragrance. Without pruning, it's grown into a fountain-shaped shrub about five feet tall and six feet wide. It can be kept smaller with moderate pruning and shaping. A great landscape rose!
