Park Seed/Wayside/J&P are now one evidently.............haven't bought mail order from J&P since it was based out of Medford, OR but did just buy Signature and it arrived today. Was sad to see how little care was given this plant in shipping-------------nothing to keep its roots moist at all! Just rose in a bag............the plant looks "nice," it looks ok, but the roots were dry on arrival and this could be lethal..............not as much disappointed as simply saddened.............once upon a time Wayside was "higher end" in price but also in quality, Park was reliable and strong (I remember those gold foil seed packs!) and J&P roses were packed with care and always super strong, big..............

Unfortunately, that's what happens when a concern of long standing respectable customer service goes bankrupt and the "business" is bought out without the production end of it. I don't know from whom they receive what they ship, but as far as I know, their production land in Wasco was sold off separately from the "business". Yes, very sad, indeed! Customer service and quality plants, shipped with care were always their trademarks.

Am looking for a rose,(or Peonie bush ) named "Melissa" to send to a friend whose daughter,Melissa, just passed away. I thought I had seen one in one of your catalogs, but the nursery says "no". Can you help me?

I am searching for an apricot Hybrid tea rose that my husband bought during the time frame of 1987 through 1989. It had wonderful fragrance and has special significance for us. In our move, we tried to take it and it didn't make it. He can't remember the name of it, but would know the plant if we saw it. Any ideas on how to search by knowing these years?

The "Advanced Search" feature on HelpMeFind is not yet set up to limit a search to specific years, however you can search the site by going to the Rose Search page and clicking on "Introductions". Then you can scroll down to the year you think the rose was introduced to commerce. It's difficult to know when the rose you are seeking was introduced, but this is the best tool we have on the site until further enhancements are made.

Smiles,
Lyn
