Order and shipping information.
Certain plants require a specific ship time. In spring or fall, shrubs, roses, and trees are all shipped semi-dormant and semi-bareroot. Since quantities are sometimes limited and items sell out, orders that are placed early are put into our system and the plants requested are held for you until the proper shipping time. We do not charge your credit card until two weeks prior to shipping. We also send notification of the exact ship date so you can be expecting your plants.

The sizes of plants sold are not young transplants, but field grown plants ready to go into the landscape: the same plants that are sold directly at the nursery. We do not pot all plants in gallon size containers, but pot them in the correct size container for the root system and its required growing space.
See http://www.mirror.org/groups/crs/efreeman.html for more information about the Explorer and Parkland series of hardy roses

A bit about 'Own root roses' Do not confuse these own root roses with small bushes. Ours are full blooming size bushes, but being on their own root they can not freeze out. Bare Root shipped March, April and October only. Potted roses available anytime. CA, WA & AZ (BR) only. All varieties on display throughout the borders, rose pergola, and herb garden. The roses offered here, own root or grafted, are ones that will be with you a lifetime, becoming more beautiful with age, so give these bushes room. These are also varieties that are not susceptible to freezing out in bad weather. We have many other miscellaneous varieties at the nursery but not in enough quantity to list. So inquire if youre looking for a particular variety.
Peak bloom for our roses is usually the first week of June.
