Connie Hilker - Heritage Roses: A Collection of Essays and Lessons
We begin our 10th season of the Rose Chat Podcast with a special broadcast. Collecting and preserving heritage roses has been Connie Hilker’s passion since 2002. This collection of stories follows Connie’s journey from amateur rose rustler to nursery owner, writer, rose consultant, and lecturer who concentrates on the history of heritage roses and their suitability for today’s gardens. In addition to hearing about Connie's book, you'll hear her recent presentation to a group of rose enthusiasts on the history of heritage roses. It's another great episode you don't want to miss!
