Our plants tend to be ready later than some other nurseries because our plants are grown outdoors without a greenhouse, so in earliest spring many of our plants will be small and may need some time to grow. Most often plants start being ready to ship mid to late May and through June. Our inventory of larger sized plants tends to increase throughout the spring and summer, so when other nurseries may be sold out, our plants may be just coming in to their own. If you would like a measurement of plants you'd like to order please ask. Please be aware of your climate zone when choosing roses. Our regular shipping season is from April through October. Please be advised that winter planting is best for the warmest zones only. We accept Paypal and checks. If you prefer Paypal an invoice will be sent to you from Paypal.
I am no longer shipping to Western states of CA, OR, WA, ID, AZ, AK, HI, UT, NM, MT, CO, OK, KS, NE, ND, SD, or Nevada. This is due to agriculture regulations, pests and pesticide exposure I want to limit. I will ship to all other eastern states plus WY, TX, AR, LA, and MS. I have to treat roots of plants with insecticide for shipping to TX, AR, and MS. Please handle treated roots with all caution and gloves. Shipping is $11.00 per box of 1 to 4 plants sent East of the MS river and is $15.00 per box sent West of the MS river. Shipping costs subject to change if the Post Office increases rates.
We use USPS priority shipping. Usually packages arrive in two or three days.
The size of plants we sell makes shipping economical. The root ball is unpotted then wrapped in damp paper towels, and enclosed in a plastic bag. Plants can be shipped in pots at your request but I can only fit three potted plants per box. In my opinion unpotted plants stay hydrated better, plus I can fit more top growth in the box if plants are unpotted. These are not dormant plants, but are in active growth. We have found that roses do very well shipped this way, even in the heat of summer. We ship only to the contiguous US.
If you are not happy with the condition of your rose upon arrival we will replace it or refund your money. That offer is good for up to one week after receiving the plant. We can not be responsible for how the plant performs in your garden, as conditions , weather, and know-how are all beyond our control. To replace or refund please email me a picture of the plant.
WHEN YOUR PLANTS ARRIVE
We recommend potting up your roses in gallon pots as soon as possible after they arrive. After the roots fill in the pots a bit and top growth is resumed, they will be ready to plant in the garden. We have planted directly in the garden with good results also, but it’s a little safer to pot them up. We welcome any questions you may have about planting and growing your roses.
