Summerland Ornamental Gardens hosts rose tour

Event will be held on June 19

A great Fathers’ Day gift could be time to smell the roses and to learn more about growing them.

Rick Sauder, rosarian for the Friends of Summerland Ornamental Gardens, is offering a tour and talk at the gardens on Sunday, June 19.

The tour will show the English rose garden, a bed of specimens developed by Agriculture and Agri-food Canada breeders and to the new Canadian Heritage Rose Garden. The roses there are all from Canadian breeders, and are world-renowned for their cold hardiness and long blooming.

The presentation begins at 11 a.m. on the Lakeview Lawn in front of the Superintendent’s House. Attendees are asked to bring their own chair, water, and to dress appropriately for the weather. Advance registration is required at workshops.summerlandgardens@gmail.com.

Following the tour, a picnic lunch could be enjoyed at one of the numerous tables in the gardens.
