DAVID AUSTIN ROSES LIMITED
Address:
Bowling Green Lane
Albrighton
Wolverhampton WV7 3HB
ENGLAND
Phone:
(0902)373931
Fax: (0902)372142
Catalog: 1.95 pounds (the monetary unit, guys)
Service: In the Spring of 1995, David Austin entered into direct licenses
with U.S. growers, rather than working exclusively through the two companies
(Heirloom and Wayside) that previously acted as his exclusive U.S. agents.
"This should speed up the introduction of some of the newer austin
cultivars, as each licensee will be getting plants to bring through
quarantine directly from Austin. Generally one new introduction will be
given to Wayside and one to Jackson & Perkins each year for the next several
years. The balance should be available from the other licensees.
Plants: About 900 varieties
Delivery: Austin's U.S. licensees are: Arena Rose Company Bear Creek
(Jackson & Perkins) Conard Pyle (wholesale only; mostly east) Heirloom Old
Garden Roses J&M Roses (wholesale only; mostly in the west) Wayside (Park
Seed Co.)

EDMUND'S ROSES
Address:

Wilsonville, OR, 97070-9799
USA
Phone:
503-682-1476
Fax: 503-682-1275
Catalog:
Free. Lots of color pictures. "I have always recommended the Edmunds
catalogue to anyone looking for an honest representation of the
varieties offered. Up until now, their catalogues have been quietly
attractive and characterized by restrained descriptions that did not
fail to mention shortcomings as well as good qualities. I was sorry to
see that the most recent list, which arrived in the mail a couple of
weeks ago, seems to have been influenced by the tarted-up graphics and
hyperbolic prose of some of the competition."
Service:
Owned by Kathy and Phil Edmunds (second-generation rose vendors). "Nice
folks to deal with." "Very helpful over the phone, and if you have a
problem with a rose, they invariably give you a credit for it or try to
replace it." "Excellent."
Plants:
About 130 varieties. Contemporary roses. Mostly modern, grafted roses.
Maturity:
Delivery:
They will ship bareroot roses in either fall or spring. (mid-november
through mid-may). The plants are packed really well.
