You people are so funny. You clamor for an April thread and give me thumbs for creating the thread, but you keep posting in the March thread.
So, I'll start the ball rolling. Some of you may know that I've hated Hortico with a white-hot rage for years. I heard some good comments about the nursery recently, however, and decided to place a small order. The order grew, of course, and now I'm getting nine roses from Hortico in a couple of weeks.
I couldn't resist the opportunity to buy grafted Austins for only $18.99. Palatine doesn't carry Austins anymore, and Pickering is gone, so Hortico is the only place I can buy Austins grafted onto multiflora and save the price and hassle of gopher-proof cages. I'm getting Crocus Rose, Darcey Bussell, The Dark Lady, Wife of Bath, and Wise Portia. The only one I already have is The Dark Lady and it's a weak little own-root rose from Chamblee's that has never done much.
I'm also getting Las Vegas and Milestone to replace the own-root ones I have now; I'm getting Jessika, which I already have, but it's so pretty that I want another one for a different part of the garden; and I'm getting King's Macc because I somehow missed buying it at any time in all these years.
I have a long list of substitutes ready in case they're out of some of these.
