I live in San Diego and purchased 6 own root potted roses from you two years ago. This year they are amazing! They are covered in buds and many of the blooms are starting to open and their different fragrances are heavenly. They are bigger this year now that the plants are established. I am really pleased with the own root roses I have purchased which include Pink Pillar, Sombreuil, Sally Holmes, Alchymist, Gruss an Aachen and La Reine. Thank you for keeping these roses available!

Thank you for the potted roses I received by mail. They look spectacular! My climbers I planted a few years ago are going gangbusters!

All the roses I ordered from you were extremely healthy with the best and longest roots I've ever had from any company. The Mermaid rose you sent me last year shot up a huge cane that was amazing. Again, thanks for these amazingly healthy roses. I will be ordering more!!!

The "Hot Cocoa" rose we got @ your place a few months ago is awesome! It not only is a beautiful color, it smells wonderful!

Hi Guinivere

I was admiring your beautiful shrubs yesterday that are thriving in the Trinity Church Cemetery in Harlem. All have survived beautifully, they should make a great show this June.

Dear Guinivere:
Thank you for sending me such healthy and beautiful roses. They arrived here on the 24th (to the San Juan Airport) but since I live in the interior of the island I just got them today, which is the usual here and it is fine with me. They arrived in excellent condition.

Dear Guinivere,
My rose arrived today in splendid condition! There are thirteen buds, healthy canes and leaves, and it was packed so well for the long trip. I am thrilled!
Twenty-five years ago, on my first trip to the uk, I spotted the unforgettable Lavender Pinocchio and never forgot its beauty. None of the places from whom I usually order seemed to carry it. Well, now I finally have one of my own to admire and paint. I am so impressed with your nursery - thank you!

Dainty Bess arrived and was taken out of the box
and watered right away. She looks great!

Dear Guinivere:
The roses arrived in good condition. We had some freezing temperatures last week. The roses were kept in the garage. All is all it's a "so far so good."
By the way - you were right about the own-root roses from you - they're larger and stronge than some other vendor.
I'll keep you posted of their conditons. Thank you.

This is to thank you for sending me such hearty and beautiful bareroot roses.  They arrived in excellent condition and I planted them immediately.  I am very pleased with your service and plant material.

The roses were received this morning in excellent condition. When I opened the box with Ballerina, I instantly fell in love---with all those tiny soft-orange hips sprinkled everywhere on the bush. Almost as good as the blooms!!
Thanks for the great service.

I must tell you that the bareroot roses we purchased from you are just superb. Rose plants I have received from other outlets often have broken roots and stems and lack the healthy ‘glow of freshness’ of the ones we bought from you. The nine we have already planted are growing well with lots of new growth buds. We can’t wait for them to start blooming.
Thanks for all your help.

The roses I ordered from you folks arrived today!! They are fine looking roses too. I have them soaking in a bucket with a little Super Thrive in it as usual. So they should be juiced up and ready for planting tomorrow late afternoon when I get back home to do so. That was pretty quick shipping and the box was not beaten up too badly either. Thanks for sending some nice looking specimens.

I am sending you folks an email to let you know how pleased I am with the Sterling Silver and Peace rosebushes I got from you this year! Both have been happy hardy rosebushes so far with lots of blooms. I entered a bloom from Sterling Silver and a bloom from my mini rose named Winter Magic in the Hi-Lo class at our local rose show. They took Best Hi-Lo entry of show too!! I am very pleased with the bloom form on the first year roses. Now I just hope they pass their "winter test" here. Year two with them should be fantastic!

Thanks for supplying such fine rosebushes!

You were very helpful with my first foray into internet commerce. I look forward to the next catalogue. The bridal vase you created is truly charming, and was a wonderful addition to another soul-satisfying cover. Thanks again, and have a great year.

I want to compliment you on the plants in the first part of the order. They all looked really strong. I'm looking forward to this summer!

Best wishes,

This time of the year is so exciting. I am in love with all the roses I have planted that came from your nursery in the past. I look forward to planting more again. Some are going to a lovely Victorian Beach Home that I purchased 2 years ago also on Orcas Island. You must be so pleased how you spread the beauty of roses to so many corners of the world!!!

Thank you.
The roses arrived yesterday. They are even beautiful in their “dry bones” state. Can’t wait to see they develop and bloom. Great plants…thanks again.

Just Joey far surpassed my expectations. I had heard Just Joey described (by rose snobs, I guess) as "overrated", but it seemed the perfect complement to my 3 year old Fragrant Delight and Wild Ginger. By June Just Joey looked like an established plant, not a recent addition and by summer's end was larger and sturdier than FD. Its beautiful dark glossy leaves never showed a trace of black spot and it has bloomed heavily and almost continuously since early spring.In the past I have purchased roses from another heirloom rose nursery and my local all-purpose nursery but comparing those plants after 2 or 3 years with the the stock I've received from you has me convinced. All of my future rose purchases will be from Roses of Yesterday.
