Welcome to my garden!

I love roses, always have. I collect roses. I have an eclectic mix, but my favorites seem to be David Austin English Roses. At last count I have 70+ varieties growing at my home. My husband thinks they will eventually take over the house! (and this is a bad idea?)
As a mother of three small helpers, all of my roses have survived varying degrees of neglect and abuse. One of my climbers only seems to get watered when the kids play in the sprinkler!

Guarantee
I hope that you will enjoy your new rose. I guarantee my roses to be true to type, healthy and ready to grow when they leave my garden. I am not responsible for your local growing conditions such as freezes, drought or extreme heat. If you have questions about your rose, please contact me and I will do my best to ensure your happiness. Roses are live plants. Everyone grows them differently. There are no returns or exchanges on roses.
Payment
I accept PayPal. Please convo me if you'd like to arrange a different form of payment. I love trades!
Shipping
Delayed Shipping is available.

Roses are shipped USPS Priority Mail and are only shipped Mon-Wed to ensure they don't send the weekend at the post office.

Your rose may have it's leaves trimmed to discourage powdery mildew.
Additional policies and FAQs
Care of your new rose

1. Unpack your rose carefully. It has had a long couple of days in a dark box.
2. Water your rose, but DO NOT soak your rose.
4. Temporarily plant your rose in a 1 gallon or larger pot. Avoid potting soils with added fertilizer; it is too strong for your baby rose. Water well after potting. Place your new rose in a cool, frost-free, shady spot for 2 or 3 days.

**DO NOT keep your rose indoors. It is NOT a houseplant.**

My roses spend the winter in a cool greenhouse. They have NOT been exposed to freezing temperatures.

*It would be best if your new rose didn’t freeze until fall.*

What to expect:
• Leaves may turn yellow and fall off. That okay, just shipping stress. They’ll grow back.
• Leaves may have been clipped off prior to shipping to help prevent powdery mildew.
• Leaves may get powdery mildew or blackspot. Again, just stress. Clip off the effected leaves.
• Don’t worry if you see little growth above the soil for the first few months. The rose is concentrating on its roots.

Planting in the Ground
When you’re ready to plant your rose in the ground, set it in the spot for a few days. With roses, the bigger hole, the better. Dig at least a hole twice as big as the pot. Mix in a handful of bonemeal into the bottom, to help with root growth. Backfill and water well. This is an own-root rose, so any new growth coming up from the ground is not a sucker, don’t clip it!

Fertilizing and Pruning
I recommend diluted liquid fertilizer every two weeks for the first growing season. DO NOT fertilize for the first month after planting. I don’t prune roses the first year, except to remove dead or damaged canes. Deadheading re-bloomers encourages blooming. Cutting roses to bring inside is my favorite way of dead heading. Do not deadhead spring bloomers and species, especially if you like to fall colors of the rose hips.
