Top 5 Reasons I support the Antique Rose Emporium:
1.) Roses - They of course are known for their amazing selection of heirloom and disease resistant roses.
2.) Free classes - Yes, you read that right. They offer a variety of classes on different subject matters to the general public. I just attended one on fall vegetable gardening. To get a list of the upcoming classes click here.
3.) Pots, fountains and bird baths - They have a lovely assortment of colorful pots, fountains and bird baths. I purchased my own bird bath from them and haven't been disappointed.
4.) Herbs and vegetables - They have a great selection of seasonal herbs and veggies to plant.
5.) Perennials - I have to admit this is why I frequent this nursery the most. They have a wonderful selection of tried and true perennials for South Texas. They carry unique and different plants that might be overlooked at the big box stores. You can also find out what is blooming or should I say "surviving" at any given time of year when you walk around the grounds at Antique Rose. The perennial beds are a great example of what will work in your garden.
