Vintage Gardens - no open garden this year
Got a message today that Gregg Lowery has canceled his Open Gardens this year because the gardens need too much work to open to visitors right now. He's been very busy with the importation of French roses and the absorption of the inventory from Eurodesert Roses, and there just has not been time to also get the gardens ready.
There are still plans to form a non-profit for the garden, but that too takes time.
I think Gregg's priorities have been exactly right, preserving the great selection that Eurodesert offered and importing roses that previously were not available, rather than spending time primping his garden for visitors. (Any of you who have opened your garden for a tour knows how much is involved - I just had a group come to my home on Sunday and I'm exhausted!)
I'm looking forward to coming to his Open Garden next year, and in years to come.
