Vernon Rickard passed away in July 2010, his wife Nancy did not know how to propagate roses. Nancy sold what was left of Vernon's roses and she has taken down the website. It was a wonderful place to order great new, own root, roses.

Vernon Rickard owner of Almost Heaven passed away suddenly on July 7. Sandy Lundberg put a beautiful tribute to him on Rosarians Corner website after his funeral. At that time the family was going to try to continue the business. They do not know how. I have spoken to Vernon's widow several times and she is going to the Nationals to sell the last of Vernon's roses. If you go to ARS website she is listed as vendor and she will be selling Eternity & Intimadator, the last two hybridized by Vernon.

Nancy also told me she is going to sell Fred Wright's roses at his request. Nancy has a full time job and never learned what to do with cuttings. Nancy is a lovely woman but she doesn't have the time or knowlege to continue the business.
