 Flier imageOur 6th annual Rose event was officially changed from "Rose Day" to "Rose Weekend."  Rose Weekend was a Your Sustainable Backyard event that included a trip to Foundation Plant Services where visitors saw 8 acres of beautiful roses, one of UC Davis' best kept secrets that is only open to the public once each year in May during this event.

Peter Boyd, noted rosarian gave a talk about old world roses, and Christan Bedard from Weeks roses gave a talk on rose breeding. The UCANR Master Gardeners had a booth on both days and answered many gardening questions, and FPS also had a booth on rose propagation.

CCUH hosted their annual rose sale on Saturday and Sunday May 3rd and 4th from 10:00 AM-4:00 p.m. The sale featured many deliciously scented roses as well as English Roses. Click on the catalog below to read more about them.
