Has anyone had experience purchasing roses from Wayside Gardens. I tried to purchase six roses to be sent to my home on the Big Island, Hawaii. According to their shipping policies they do ship to Hawaii. When I went to check out it was indicated that one of the roses, Tournament of Roses, could not be shipped to Hawaii. So, I substituted another one. They wouldn't send that one either. I called the company and tried to complete the order on the telephone. No dice. The nice lady stated that the Hawaii Department of Agriculture prohibited the shipment of these particular roses. The Hawaii Ag. Department does not prohibit the shipment of roses to Hawaii. And they certainly don't blacklist a particular rose.
I would like to purchase the six roses from Wayside Gardens. Can anyone think of a way I might accomplish this?
