June is Rose Month at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden & the New York Botanical Garden & on Gaby's Brooklyn terrace
I missed the free day at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden on Tuesday, but am hoping to make it to the New York Botanical Garden and its Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden or the Brooklyn Botanical Garden this Saturday morning. Last year, I won a florabunda rose at a raffle at the NY Botanical Garden. I had heard that Roses were difficult to grow and since at the time we had North light in our fifth floor walk up on the Upper East Side, I had been worried about the rose plant.
