Roses are among my favorite plants. Even though this website focuses on flower seeds, I want to include my beloved roses.
I'm especially fond of old-fashioned style roses like David Austin's wonderful creations. My first consideration when buying a rose is disease resistance. I use organic gardening methods, and I give my roses a good start in life by digging a "big hole", as recommended by John and Louise Clements of Heirloom Roses. Their roses come with excellent instructions for planting and fertilizing. All of my roses were purchased from Heirloom Roses.
