We are in the midst of constructing our new Rose Garden in Hendrie Park and are excited to share our progress with you. Alex Henderson, curator of living collections, RBG, is speaking to the history of roses in Hendrie Park, including how we determined it was time for a rejuvenation and new direction. Learn about how the plan for the new Rose Garden came together with Jim Mack, head of horticulture, RBG. Jim touches on the timing of the project, and introduces our special guest, Peter Kukielski — rose expert and consultant lead on the rejuvenation project. Join us in welcoming Peter Kukielski as he speaks about roses and genetics, and what it takes to create a thriving, sustainable rose garden, without the use of chemicals.

Peter is the former curator of Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden at New York Botanical Garden and author of Roses Without Chemicals: 150 Disease-Free Varieties That Will Change The Way You Grow Roses.
