400+ varieties of own-root varieties in Tom Liggett's nursery
greenhouse. These were grown from cuttings:
we were graciously allowed to take from Vintage Gardens, and
those sent to us by several participants in the rec.gardens.roses newsgroup.
120+ varieties of budded roses donated by Edmund's Roses, Arena
Roses, and Regan's Roses.
120+ of our imported varieties newly released from quarantine at Vintage Gardens.
50+ varieties grown by Tom Liggett and Mel Hulse.
The First increment of over 120 roses
have been planted by volunteers.
While Ed Wilkinson completes the database update for
locating all of the new plantings, volunteers are removing duplicates from the garden to
make room for the new varieties. Many great roses are available to folks who spend a day
on this effort.
Volunteers continue to engrave and put computer
location plaques on roses in the garden.
Roses are being picked up from Vintage Nursery as
space becomes available in the Garden for their planting.
Planting days will be announced in the San Jose Mercury News. This will be
accomplished over several different weekends.
