Burling brings her passion for roses and rose gardens to inspire us about her recent work to reintroduce the original varieties to the Hearst Castle garden. She is the owner of a wonderful mail order rose nursery, Burlington Nursery, located in Visalia, CA and will describe how she used her talents to propagate roses (own-root and budding) to assist in the restoration of Hearst Castle rose garden. Prior to establishing her own nursery, Burling worked with Ralph Moore, who many call the "Father of Miniature Roses", in his nursery in Visalia. Come and learn more about Hearst and how the beauty of roses enhance gardens.
Burling has graciously offered to bring any roses you pre-order to the meeting. Yes, that means no shipping charges. Her availability list was distributed via email to club members. Just email your order to Burlingtonroses@aol.com or call her at (559) 747-3624. Make sure you tell her you are a member of the Mount Diablo Rose Society and ask her to bring your roses to the meeting Wednesday, September 9. You can pay her at the meeting.
As you know there is always room for one more rose, so don't miss this great opportunity to get one or more beautiful roses at a great price! If you have any questions, contact Karen Jefferson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are taking Burling to dinner at 5:30 at Mimi's prior to the meeting. If you want to join us, please contact Karen Jefferson at email@example.com by noon Tuesday, September 8th.
