Clark Botanic Garden’s Rejuvenated Rose Garden in Full Bloom
North Hempstead, NY – North Hempstead Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth and the Town Board announced that Clark Botanic Garden in Albertson has unveiled a newly improved rose garden which features eight garden beds and over 90 different types of roses. The public is encouraged to visit the rose garden at Clark Botanic Garden, which is currently in full bloom.
The rose garden was replanted with sustainability in mind, it now contains soil with organic nutrients planted in a sunny area to ensure stability. The roses selected have a reputation of being disease resistant and are suitable for Long Island’s climate.
“June is the peak time to come to Clark Garden to experience our new rose garden,” said Supervisor Bosworth. “I encourage everyone to plan a visit soon and to stop and smell the roses.”
The eight beds have a wide variety of roses, flower colors and blends that are included to show the diversity of the plant. The garden border and space in between the rose plants were planted with weed suppressing plants and the path for the rose garden was refreshed with blue stone chips. Cathy Guzzardo, Master Gardener and Master Rosarian planned and planted the garden.
Clark Botanic Garden is located at 193 I. U. Willets Rd, Albertson and the garden is open from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.
