Gregg Lowery

In the early 1980s, Gregg Lowery’s passion for old roses began to develop into one of the world’s great collections. The rose collection was developed through gifts of plant material from then still-existent old gardens or small nurseries in the United States, from cuttings propagated from old plants discovered in California and other states at abandoned homesteads, old cemeteries and the like, and by purchasing and importing cultivars no longer available elsewhere from specialized nurseries abroad.

His love of old roses resulted in documented inventories of 5,412 named cultivars. The Friends of Vintage Gardens is a volunteer organization that is working to inventory all remaining plants and to obtain replacements for lost specimens deemed worthy of continued representation in the collection.

In this episode, Gregg will let us know about worldwide preservation efforts and his rose adventures in Belgium and Germany this summer.
