Pruning Piles...

Okay, we are officially done pruning the roses. These piles have been chipped and shall be spread throughout the beds. 

We can't wait until Spring and green foliage! Sticks, stones, thorns and bare-roots are all we have for now!

Rows of Roses

Here at Garden Valley, we specialize in growing garden roses. The term 'garden rose' refers to roses that are grown outdoors so that sunlight can warm up the oils in the petals to produce the wonderful fragrances that we love. Each rose has it's own unique scent, some are sweet and heavy of musk, while others are light and spicy like anise. We hope you take time to stop and smell the roses!

ROSES 101: Little Flower School at Garden Valley Ranch
10am - 4pm

Garden Valley Ranch in Petaluma, California grows some of the finest heirloom roses in the country (without pesticides!) and supplies our studios each spring and summer with the most fragrant and unusual specimens. In this day-long class, we’ll tour the rose fields with Garden Valley staff and learn about their rose growing techniques. After lunch we’ll discuss the basics of flower arranging and use our rose clippings together with a smattering of other California grown stems to create lush rambling centerpieces.
Possibly our most exciting class yet...we encourage you to browse the roses grown at Garden Valley and hope to see you there in May!

All materials, clippers, lunch and sunscreen provided.
Registration here.

Welcome to Garden Valley Ranch

 Garden Valley Ranch is a unique, nine-acre rose garden, home to 10,000 rosebushes cultivated for the sale of their blossoms to both individual cut rose lovers as well as the floral trade. We specialize in fragrant garden roses grown outdoors chemical free in Petaluma, California. Here is a view of the main field which is filled with row after row of fragrant garden roses that bloom from mid May through October.

 As a wedding site, along with the fields of roses that are in bloom May through October, we offer a Victorian Belvedere, a brick dance floor set in a large lawn, a one-acre garden devoted to fragrant plants, pond gardens, as well as a spectacular 200-foot flower border.

Come visit our nursery and tour the rose garden around Mother's Day through October! Our fragrant beauties will surely find a special place in your heart as they do in ours.
