They look great, Zuzu!
This will be wonderful to see their progress and see how they do here, as well.
We are giving them the ole East coast/West coast "trials". Hilarious!

I'm in the middle of the country, and I really like Hortico's roses. They're nearly always the largest rooted roses that I receive, and they seem to like it here. I plant their stock in December, and to date I haven't lost a single one. Hurray!

I planted two dozen of their plants this past winter and all of them are already in leaf and growing strongly.

I agree Chelle.

Love Hortico and will continue ordering from them.

Their roses have just taken off!

Many of mine have suffered a considerable amount of dieback since they arrived. Perhaps it's my choices. Most of my roses are hybrid teas.

Have you ever ordered from Palatine, Chelle? Their roses are easily one and one-half the size of Hortico's, and even Pickering's are larger than Hortico's. But then again, I'm comparing bare-root hybrid teas from these three companies, and it's possible that Hortico is superior in some other area of the rose market.

I don't order many hybrid teas. They either don't like it here, or they don't care for my particular brand of nurturing. Hilarious!

I tried Pickering last year and received really small plants. They are, however, still alive. Smiling

Palatine always seems to be out of the ones I'm looking for.

Palatine sells out quickly. This year they started taking orders on September 1st. I placed my order shortly after 9:00 pm here on August 31st, knowing it was already after midnight in Ontario.

I have received some smaller plants from Pickering, but only if I take delivery late in the season. The best roses are shipped out in winter and sometimes the only ones left by spring are smaller. Pickering, however, knocks $2 off the cost of those smaller roses, in contrast to other mail-order merchants.

[Pickering] I did get the $2 off on a couple of them; however, I knew in advance that those would be small.

I'll keep Palatine's prime ordering date/time in mind; thanks for passing that info along. Thumbs up

Got 2 Climbers from Antique Rose Emporium last year and was horrified by how small they were.

But I am happy to report they are now 6 feet tall, full and buds are developing!

I've never bought anything from ARE because the shipping charge to California is ridiculous. At one time it was 40% of the total cost of merchandise ordered. I don't know what it is now, but I think I already have everything on their website that I would want. My taste in roses is radically different from ARE's. Smiling
