Open Garden Days at Freedom Gardens
Everyone is cordially invited to Freedom Gardens' 16th Annual Open Gardens at the homestead of Susan and Peter Schneider, 6193 Vair Road, Freedom Township, Portage County, Ohio 44266.
• Sunday, 9 June 2013, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.

• Sunday, 16 June 2013, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Our collection of over 1200 different roses features newer and hard-to-find hybrid teas, floribundas and shrubs from the European nurseries, and heritage roses imported from Andre Eve in France, Peter Beales in England, and Martin Weingart, the nurseryman near Sangerhausen, Germany. Many of these roses cannot be seen anywhere else between Europe and California. We have nearly complete collections of Paul Jerabek's Ohio-bred creations, and David Austin's English roses. Our rose garden was featured in the April/May 2007 edition of Horticulture magazine, the August 2010 edition of Ohio magazine and in Peter Schneider’s new book, Right Rose, Right Place. It is an ideal place to see which roses really are winter hardy in Zone 5.
An interesting selection of potted roses, all propagated at Freedom Gardens, will be offered for sale on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Please call Susan or Peter on 330.296.2618 for accurate directions, bloom updates or more information. We look forward to seeing lots of rose friends on 9, 15 and 16 June!
