How may I update the as of date for the plant listing for Sacramento Historic Rose Garden? It keeps showing 14 Nov 2008.

You must have added or deleted a rose as it is now showing “Listing last updated on 16 Sep 2019.”

If you click on "Plants grown" it shows the 2008 date. Yes, I have been updating - much overdue!

All gardens should be updated once a year. I pick early January to do mine.
I got on to my husband’s computer and, yes the update date is showing 2008.
On my (volunteer administrator’s) computer it shows 2019. We’ll get help on this one.

Patricia, sounds like your husband's computer needs to refresh the cache. The procedure is slightly different depending on the browser used. It should be refreshing automatically though ?

Thank you Admin. We’ ... take it on board.
Later edit - I see. We got it. Ta.

There is a UPDATE AS OF DATE button for changing this date. Is it not displayed for you ? Meanwhile, we've update the date for you but we still want to address this issue. The AS OF date is automatically updated if you use the UPLOAD LIST OF PLANTS feature.

Mark not my grave with stone or sculptur’d urn,
I want no labour’d art where I repose;
When life is past, and I to dust return
I’d lie beneath the shadow of a Rose.
Plant me a Rose my resting place to hide!
The crystal drops of dew her petals weep,
Will seem like tears she could not brush aside,
While at her feet her lover lies asleep.
….John Kendrick Blogg.

The roses at the Sacramento City Cemetery, California need immediate world-wide help.

Weeping at the prospect of the loss of many roses that adorn the graves.

There must be a way this can be reconsidered.
There are email addresses available if HMF members wish to contact the city officials.
Is it OK to copy the addresses here?

I think not. Included email addresses here apparently attracts SPAM to the site.
The URL i have quoted above will lead to email addresses that one can use. I sent 10 emails and have already received an answer from the Sacramento Council, the last two paragraphs of which are:

The guidelines put together by the ad-hoc committee call for roses to be trimmed around the gravesites so that visitors can access and see the headstones. During the planning sessions, it was also recommended that the climbing roses and non-historic trellises be relocated to the stone fence that surrounds the cemetery. The move of the trellises will take place in December.

All recommendations received input prior to being put in place and agreed to by all of the volunteers in attendance. The planning efforts and the on-going guidelines are in place so that both the historic cemetery and headstones may be enjoyed along with the rose garden. In an effort to alleviate any misunderstandings among the group, the City will be meeting with the ad-hoc committee to review the plans to ensure that everyone is in agreement.
