Geraldine Rose is a master gardner, fiercely knowledgable feminist and also, my grandmother.

My earliest years of wonder and exploration developed in the back yards, kitchens, swimming pools of both my grandparents homes.
The Gerladine signature series is a botanical nod to celebrate the avocado trees that grandma Jerry waited 15 years to bloom... and a subtle progression of hope to express that beautiful things can come from darkness and sometimes dreams need a little patience to blossom.
