Another one bites the dust...

Times are tough for everyone today, and we know we are not the only ones with budget woes. Like everyone else, we have had to face whether we should continue in the face of substantial losses of sales. Our basic operational costs are no longer being met and our beloved rose garden has suffered the worst of it. As you know we were unable to open my garden in May for lack of the manpower and resources to make it presentable. We were faced this summer with many roses that could not be propagated because of the condition of plants in the garden.

Friends of Vintage Roses are working with me to focus on preserving my collection of roses, but at the present time we do not know if the garden itself can survive.

At the same time we must decide the fate of Vintage Gardens. After long and difficult consideration, Gita and I have determined that we must set a date to finish the work of Vintage Gardens. In order to fill our obligations to our customers we have set that closing date for the Summer of 2013. Our Import Roses will have been supplied to customers, we will have completed all custom orders and shipped them out, and we will have a final close out sale at that time.

We will be around awhile longer yet�but only to say a long goodbye.
