25th Annual Rose Open House

25th Annual Rose Open House

25th Annual Rose Open House at the home of Raymond & Michal Graber, who have been growing own root roses in Alfred, Maine for over 50 years.


In their private, 5 acre English Country Garden, there are over 300 roses in all shapes and sizes from
climbers on arbors, old fashioned historic roses collected from abandoned farmsteads and historic homes in
York County. 


To share their knowledge they opened a nursery 25 years ago, so folks could be successful in growing
hardy roses on their own roots that will thrive and survive in our coldest of winter weather.
