Last year, I received a request from the management at the Thomas Jefferson Center for Historic Plants, at Monticello's Tufton Farm in Charlottesville, Virginia, to be a speaker at their 2014 Wine and Roses open house, which is this Saturday, May 31. It's a popular annual event ... one of the few times when the wonderful gardens at Tufton are open to the public.
My presentation is about heirloom roses that are well-suited for Virginia gardens. It is a program that I usually do with a Powerpoint full of photos ... this time, I will be using live material and plants from Monticello's nursery.
I am very excited and honored to be doing this. The weather this weekend is predicted to be warm and wonderful, perfect for spending a day in the garden, teaching about roses.
