Perfume Rose Harvest Tours

Today I went to the Russian River Rose Company in Healdsburg, CA on the Classic Perfume Harvest Tour. I watched freshly picked rose petals being distilled into Rose Water (also known as Rose Hydrosol). Their rose water is divine.Read the rest of her blog post here.

Nursery & Gardening Advice

I purchased a Westerland climbing rose from you when I toured your garden with a Senior Group from Alameda. I just wanted to tell you how beautiful and happy it is on my fence. Even on foggy mornings, its blossoms shine like little suns. Thank you for your help in selecting my great sunshine climber!
-Joan N., Alameda, CA

The Madame Alfred Carriere roses just took off! They doubled in size (or so it seemed) the minute they went into the ground. Very satisfying! Thanks for all your help.
-Vikki D., Novato, CA

That little rose (Brass Ring) I bought had such healthy shiny leaves, it should have been called Shining Brass!
-Fran M., San Leandro, CA

We certainly appreciated all your help in selecting our new roses. They are all now happily planted and soaking up the new rain.
