Rose pruning classes

Rose pruning classes

On Saturday, January 14, the Historic Rose Garden will again host Stephen Scanniello, a Great Rosarian of the World, president of the Heritage Rose Foundation and curator of the Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden, for two pruning workshops. This is a chance to learn from an expert and to be regaled with many entertaining tales of roses and the people who grow them. The first, at 9 am, will focus on pruning climbing roses. The second, at 1 pm, and will show techniques for pruning and rehabilitating mature plants. While our workshops are usually free, we would appreciate a minimum of $10 donation to be shared between the Heritage Rose Foundation and for expenses in the Historic Rose Garden.

 

The cemetery is located at 1000 Broadway, Sacramento. There is limited parking within the cemetery, but parking is also available on surrounding surface streets. For more information, call 916-448-0811.

Pollination sensation

Pollination sensation

Summertime is peak pollinator season as hummingbirds, butterflies, bees, and other beneficial insects are out in full force gathering pollen and nectar for their nests. California native plants in particular provide an excellent, high-nutrient source of food for not just the European honeybees but for our native birds and pollinators. Join our tour in the California Native Plant Demonstration Garden and learn how to garden for pollinators with our resilient, drought-tolerant summer blooming natives that continue to bring beauty into the garden even during the hottest months of the year. Sunday, June 26, 2016 10:00 a.m. Sacramento Old City Cemetery.

Urban Attitudes by La-Z-Boy Furnishings Collection Featured at “The Mill at Broadway” New Model Home

After years of housing stagnation, Sacramento is once again becoming the hotbed for new home developments with fresh and updated interiors.  Recently, the VP of Design for the local La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries, Palm Singh, was selected to design one of the largest new home models in the “The Mill at Broadway” development built by Bardis Homes.  Created as an urban residential community in downtown Sacramento, “The Mill at Broadway” new home models opened to the public on October 24, 2015.    

After a designer-search contest last year, Bardis Homes assembled a “dream team” of eight local designers, including Singh, who were tasked with transforming the various model homes with fresh and contemporary interiors that reflect the desire for more casually living and still be at prices that buyers could afford.
