I had ordered an Almost Black Rose from Burgess Seed and Plant Co. Plus I ordered my Elderberry bushes.

They arrived today in good condition and surprise, they sent 2 Almost Black Roses.

Now I have a good start on my rose garden. Melva is sending my 4 roses. One of them is a climber/rambler for my front fence. Ya!!! My garden is on its way.

Thanks zuzu,

It will be 2 years before I'll get elderberries for jelly making but thats OK. Once they get to producing, I'll have more than I need.

And the roses will be flowering this year. They sent me nice healthy looking plants and they're not little roses plants.

Yay! You had good luck w/Burgess? I've never ordered from them. Do all elderberries produce edible fruit? I have two elderberries.. a variegated & a "Golden". The Golden is in the back yard.. poor thing is always being squashed by my dogs or dug up, but it perseveres! The variegated is in a full-shaded area.. it was supposed to get no bigger than 4' and the darned thing is almost 7' tall! I'm digging it out this spring.. dunno where I'll plant it, though! :(

Oh, and since you've brought it up that your garden's underway, make sure you take lots of "before" photos so we can see the progress! I *love* seeing before/after pictures!

Has far as I know all elderberries produce fruit. The Black Lace Elderberry according to what I read produces berries, but one of the DG members has it and says no berries. It takes 2 -4 years for a bush to produce berries. They like full sun to late afternoon sun. At least thats how they were growing in Bakersfield, Calif. Temps over 100 most of the summer They do like water, so when I get mine planted I plan to run a drip line to them.
