Our garden, begun in 1991, is home to approximately 1,600 roses: hybrid teas, floribundas, climbers and mini roses. In addition, there are many succulents and xeriscape plant sections. Our January and February workshops, open to the public, concentrate on pruning, while March and April activities include pruning and fertilizing.
First blooms are enjoyed during April and May. June through August are spent weeding and deadheading.
The cooling in Autumn brings another flush of bloom before we let the garden slip into dormancy at the end of the year.
Rose Haven is located at 30592 Jedediah Smith Rd., Temecula, at the corner of Cabrillo Avenue. From Rancho California Road drive south on Ynez Road 2-1/2 miles to Jedediah Smith Road, then turn left. Rose Haven is one block from the intersection of Jedediah Smith and Ynez. (Be aware that Ynez turns into De Portola Rd. at that intersection!)
Visitors (and photographers) are always welcome, and there is ample parking on site. Professional photographers are expected to make a suitable donation for using the garden. Contact Rebecca Weersing at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information, or phone 951 595-7046.
The garden is open every day of the year from sunrise to sunset. Please do not cut the flowers—leave them for others to enjoy.
