If it at first you don't succeed...
I was planning to plant some bare root roses last weekend.
The local nurseries are sold out. I found out that the container roses won't be available until mid April.
I went to the Roses of Yesterday and Today website and was able to order three roses; Double Delight, Olympiad and St. Patrick. The price delivered, $87 was less than I would pay for container roses and I'll have them in the ground a month sooner. They have a nice selection of old garden roses and I remember driving to their nursery many years ago when roses were a big hobby of mine.
