Time to plant roses in the Garden!

Come see our potted roses, both own root 1 and 2 gallon size potted roses and 5 gallon potted roses.  Bare Root Roses must be ordered ahead so we can place them in our "Pick Up Box" on a day that is convenient for you.  Come see the roses and enjoy a picnic in the garden every day, including holidays, from 9 to 4.

Roses bloom through fall and even winter in California, so the garden is enchanting any time of year. Potted roses are available year-round.

The Corralitos Market is a great place to stop for hot sandwiches and many of the best restaurants in the Monterey Bay area proudly state they serve their sausages and bacon. Gizdich Pies are regularly sold fresh there, as well! For a peaceful and interesting place to stay, try Sand Rock Farm Bed and Breakfast in Aptos. A few other great places to visit are the Gizdich Ranch for U-Pick Berries, sandwiches and fresh pie slices, Aladdin's Nursery on Freedom Blvd., and Sierra Azul, which is located near Gizdich Ranch and across from the Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds. For dining in Santa Cruz, we recommend a favorite, Cloud's Downtown or Olita's on the Santa Cruz Wharf.
