It has only been a short two weeks since our Antique Rose Festival, but we still have a great selection of roses! The best part is that the majority of the current inventory has blooms or buds so you can actually see what the rose will look like at home.
We are featuring roses on Facebook that are in bloom and that we still have here to sell. Please call us if you have any questions about availability. The small roses are $15 and the larger size is $30.
The roses will only be for sale until the second week of June this year. Afterwards we will winter the roses to keep them in the best possible condition for next year.
Heirloom perennials from the Cemetery are also still available. The largest inventory is in hellebore (lenten roses) and Siberian iris. The irises are starting to bloom and the only color we have seen so far is white, however we also have deep purple. Prices range from $1.75 to $5.00.
We have a limited amount of Panorama Pay-Dirt Compost for sale. OCC is the sole distributor of the Charlottesville-based product. This “black gold” mixture comes in a 1-cubic-foot bag and sells for $8.95.
Everything is available for pick-up any day of the week at the Cemetery Center (Monday-Saturday 10-3; Sunday 1-5). However, during the week we are here in the office before and after those hours, so please knock on the door so we can assist you!
