Earlier this week, my friends John and Marie invited me to tag along with the Saratoga Master Gardeners to tour Rosewood Gardens in West Charlton, NY. Rosewood is both the home and the site of a commercial nursery owned by Paul and Joanne Strevy.
website says that they have "the largest selection of David Austin English roses in the Capital District."
My own peonies have gone by, but the Rosewood peonies were still in full glory. Joanne told us that she lengthens their bloom season by covering them with plastic tablecloths whenever it rains. Hmm.
