Forest Farm Order / Thanks Bluegirl!
I placed one last fall order with Forest Farm who I've never purchased from, and never actually heard of until "Bluegirl" mentioned them in a thread I started regarding reasons we grow roses other than for their blooms, over in the Antiques Forum. They have an immense selection of plants along with a good selction of ownroot roses (species roses inparticular). There were a few species roses I was interested in adding to either the back of my property, or to get a head start on some new acerage we're in the process of buying.
I was very pleased when they arrived today! Nice big plants and they were reasonably priced. They even gave me two "tubes" (their version of a band) of a pioneer rose called "Irene Pony Express" because one of the plants was on the small side, so I really appreciated the gesture.
Here's what I ordered:
R. Dumalis / $12.00
Old Pink Moss / $15.00
R. Pimpinellifolia (Scots Rose)/$12.00
Father David's Rose/$8.95
Irene Pony Express/$9.95
R Villosa (Apple Rose)/$9.95
