26th Annual Fall Roses Festival

October 27th, 2016 by Susan Lopez

Who attends the 26th Annual Fall Roses Festival at the Antique Rose Emporium in Brenham, Texas?  Anyone who loves to garden!  It will be held on November 4,5,6, 2016.  What a fun way to learn about propagating roses, landscaping, designing gardens and working within your garden climates.  It is a great opportunity to ask the experts all of the questions you have about gardening!  This is a free event and is a come and go event.  Food trucks will be on the grounds on Friday and Saturday.  At Brenham House Bed and Breakfast we love our antique roses and really don’t have to do too much to them in order for them to thrive.  You will want to add them to your gardens too!

Have You Ever Been To The Antique Rose Emporium?

July 15th, 2013 by Susan Lopez

The Antique Rose Emporium is located at 9300 Lueckemeyer Road, in Brenham, Texas.  It is not far from Brenham House and it is a delightful treat for everyone who love plants and gardening.  Built on an early settler’s homestead, this nationally renowned 8 acre garden features hundreds of romantic antique roses, herbs, wildflowers, old-fashioned perennials, and native plants that are so beautiful to admire.  Each site contains herb gardens, cottage gardens, and many perennial borders.

Antique Rose Emporium has wonderful walking paths among all of the beautiful plants. So purchase something to take home, that you will enjoy for years.  It is interesting how magical plants can be when added to your yard.  There is also a large selection of garden accessories and gifts, in the gift shop.

Antique Rose Emporium host events and have seasonal demonstrations.  The workers are very knowledgable and can help you with any garden questions you might have or information on bugs that might bother you.  It is a great place to bring your cameras and take pictures because the backdrop is so spectacular!  They also allow weddings at Antique Rose Emporium and I can’t think of a more beautiful place to have a wedding.
