Friends of the Rose Garden

Screen Shot 2013-03-20 at 1.38.33 PMYears ago, a special group of Temelec residents came together to care for the Hall’s extensive rose gardens. Recently, care for the roses has fallen to the landscaper gardeners, with the result that they are in need of some extra TLC (the roses, not the gardeners!).

Is anyone interested in getting together to meet throughout the summer to share in caring for the roses, talk about rose care and enjoy the company of fellow rose lovers? We will get involved in pruning, dead-heading and feeding, among other things. No heavy work. Anyone who is knowledgeable about rose care is particularly welcome.

To respond, please call Gayle Crawford at 935-1182 or email her at Also, please pass along this request to any neighbor who may be interested, but who does not have access to the website.
