We alas cannot list all old rose nurseries, and do not wish to seem to
be recommending any one or group over any other in something involving
commercial interests. The societies listed above can provide lists of
nurseries, at least one recent book ("The Quest for the Rose") lists
several for a number of countries around the world, and there is
currently (November 1, 1994) a thread on this newsgroup discussing rose
suppliers (if it is gone, start another thread asking!).
