OGRs

My garden is ready for OGRs. I have searched but cannot find a nursery that sells them. If any information or help is available in my search I'd be very grateful and muy contento.

Hi Richard!

I'd take a look at the link at the bottom. It was a recent thread where forum members compiled a list of reputable sources for Old Garden Roses. If you're in the US, Europe, or Australia, I'm sure you should be able to find some vendors that sell them. If you're in Asia, then I'm not going to be of much help, but perhaps others may.

I'm afraid one of your major issues is finding a nursery willing to export to Mexico. First, I suggest you contact your Agricultural Department and determine what restrictions they may have concerning importing roses into Mexico from the United States. It's unlikely any of the American nurseries are going to be familiar with what your country requires. That is up to you to determine so you can follow the appropriate steps and provide the exporting nursery with the appropriate paperwork for them to legally export to you. Good luck! Kim

I believe Peter Beales ships worldwide with a few exceptions. I think Bierkreek in the Netherlands also used to do this but I can't find any information on their pages.

Mexico is one of the countries listed they ship to on their Help Me Find-Roses home page. Kim

Ha, silly of me to not connect zone 11 and "muy contento" with Mexico.

If you're close to Texas, you could look into whether you can bring plants from ARE or Chamblees into Mexico. I'm really not sure of the legal specifics of physically bringing in roses from another country into Mexico by yourself as opposed to having a nursery ship them into the country, but Kim mentioned a few of the potential issues with importing them.

If you are looking for a Mexican nursery, you might want to contact a public rose garden to find out where they get their roses. I am posting a link for the Jardín Botánico del Instituto de Biología de la UNAM, in case you think it might be useful to contact someone there to ask for recommendations.

Also, I would imagine that there's probably a national association of nurseries that you could contact?

Good luck,
Virginia

Hi Jay, Kim, Mariannese, Thanks for the speedy help and tips. I'm off to the Agricultural Dept in the morning to sort out the red tape.
I'll let you know how well I progress.
