Preparing for September's Open Garden Days

Now that September is here, the thoughts of most gardeners turn toward fall planting ... which leads to fall plant sales ... like my Open Garden Days on Saturdays in September.

I was outside earlier this morning prepping and primping the pots of roses for sale, and I am amazed at how many of them are in bloom.  I ran inside to get my 'good' camera, so I can share them with you.



'Ivory Triumph' and 'Gartendirektor Otto Linne'
(Floribunda and Polyantha)

'Alba Meideland'
(climbing Shrub)

'Little Buckaroo'
(miniature China)


"Caldwell Pink", aka 'Pink Pet'

'Sharon's Delight'
(modern Shrub)

'Reve d'Or'

'White Pet'

"Tutta's Pink Noisette"

'Climbing Rouletii'
(climbing China)

Hartwood Roses will be open from 10am to 3pm on September 3, 10, and 24.  (Click HERE for a map and directions.)  All roses are $15.  A complete list of our current inventory is available on our web site  (Click HERE)  Remaining roses are going fast, so consider ordering ahead of time if you are planning to visit, and yo can pick up your roses while you are here.  If you live out of the area and cannot visit the garden in person, our online store is always open. 

Fall is a great time to plant roses!!

I hope to see LOTS of you on Saturdays this month!  (Please avert your eyes when you see the weeds ... we want you to enjoy the roses and soak up the country atmosphere.)


  1. Everything looks lovely. Wish I lived close by. The color of the "Little Buckaroo" is amazing!!


  2. Wish I was close by, I'd be there with bells on! However, I doubt I'd buy any roses and doom them to death. I have black thumbs. Plants hate me!

  3. Like the others, I so wish I could be there! I can just smell all that heavenly fragrance....
    xo, misha

  4. Good luck we'll be thinking of you while we are having our Open Sale Day also. I did the very same thing, getting the pots ready, yesterday and today! No doubt we'll bet sweating bullets while you'll be cool as a cucumber. Your comment about the weeds is so right on, I had to smile! Please save a "special" rose for us, we'll settle up when we see you in October! All the best~

  5. I want to be a rose in your garden so I can be pampered and primped!
    I haven't been on in ages and yours is one of the first blogs I went to visit. So peaceful to see all the wonderful blossoms. I truly appreciate the hard work you put into your blooming babies!


  6. Like everyone else, how I wish I lived next door to you --- I love roses, but it's difficult to keep them alive during the harsh winters in the Northern Great Plains.

    Good luck with your rose sales. But I doubt you will need it. :)

  7. Hola, Connie, soy de Costa Rica, hoy he recorrido tu blog, me ha fascinado, como empezaron a tener esa casa tan hermosa que tanto costo su remodelación. Me fascinan las rosas, pero no tengo mucho espacio mi casa es pequeña y no tengo patio, solo seis metros en una jardinera. Eres muy afortunada de tener este jardín tan bello. Saludos
