Spring in the Garden

The garden is in full bloom! Come see it! Read about it in this article in the Examiner: The San Jose Heritage Rose Garden showcases the history of roses.

We're still planting roses- come help if you can. We also can use help with weeding, and a variety of other maintenance chores

Fall in the Heritage Rose Garden Event

We had a successful event on October 2, and raised a significant amount of money for the garden. You can see pictures and videos from the event here: Photos and Videos from Oct 2, 2010.

We are already propagating some of our rare roses to sell at next year's event, which will be help on Sept 24, 2011. If you want to help in any way, contact Jill (see bottom of this page). You may also contact Jill if there is a rare rose you think should be propagated. We often don't realize that we have the only plant in the country of some variety until someone tells us.

Workdays. Workdays are Wednesdays and Saturdays, from 9 to 12. Bring a hat, water and sunscreen, we will supply tools and leather gloves. No experience? We'll show you how! COME and work in the roses for as long as you enjoy it. When the weather gets hot, the time will change- 8am - 11am
