Yer Dead Relatives Are Killing The Roses

At the Wellington, New Zealand, Botanical Gardens, so many people are spreading the cremated remains of loved ones on the roses that they are suffering health problems.

I seem to recall that one of the more touching passages of Robert Heinlein's The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress involves a flower garden where the ashes of the protagonist's family find their final resting place.
