Raymond and Michal Graber, owners of Old Sheep Meadows Nursery in Alfred, insist
Raymond and Michal Graber, owners of Old Sheep Meadows Nursery in Alfred, insist that anyone who can grow vegetables in Maine can also grow roses. The couple has developed a plant list of over 200 roses that can take Maine winters. In addition to hardy roses, the Grabers have a huge collection of daylilies--750 named varieties plus dozens that Raymond has hybridized himself. Before turning to the nursery full time, he was a plant ecologist at the University of New Hampshire. Michal takes time from the nursery to design gardens for private clients and consult with garden clubs throughout the state.
