Open Garden, 350 Chaparral Street, Salinas


Ellen Willmott, hybrid tea, 1935
Visit my garden on Sunday, May 27, noon to 5 p.m. Gardening public welcome. All parking is on the street. Enter the back yard through the side gate.

I haven't opened my garden for viewing in 7 years and hope that this opportunity will bring many visitors. Several of the roses have been in the garden since 1993 and are showing at their very best this season.

It's an eclectic selection which includes hybrid teas, floribundas, miniatures, shrubs and climbers. I have a good sampling of damask, alba, hybrid perpetuals, polyanthas, species and noisettes as well. I also have an array of succulents and other garden plants which should be of interest.

Baronne Prévost, hybrid perpetual, 1841 -Winner, Best Old Garden Rose at the 2018 Monterey Bay Rose Society show.
The rose pictured above was one of a dozen roses clusters that bush produced. The fragrance is awesome.

Annual Rose Show is this Saturday

Judges from Central California review all the blooms at a Rose Show
Join rose lovers from around the Monterey Bay at Alladin's Nursery and Gift Shop 12 to 4 p.m. Saturday, May 5, for the 2018 Monterey Bay Rose Society's Annual Rose Show. The show features some of the best flowers grown by experienced professionals and passionate novices. Samples of the many forms of America's National Flower will be on display to delight the senses - except maybe touch. Watch out for the thorns.
Perfect Moment, a past Queen of Show

Got a rose you'd like identified? Bring a sample to the show and one of the consulting rosarians will do his or her best in telling you what it is.

In addition to the roses, Alladin's offers music, wine tasting, and delicious food from the grill.


Dazzling display of rose sprays
 Alladin's Nursery is one of the oldest, independently owned and operated garden centers along the Central Coast with hundreds of plants and garden items for sale. It's approaching its 100th birthday and is located at 2905 Freedom Blvd, Watsonville.

Exotic and unusual flowers are always on display
Exit Highway One on Green Valley Road. Drive to Freedom Blvd and turn left. Continue to Alladin's Nursery. Got questions? Call them at 831-724-7517.
