The "Roses" link lists companies that sell roses including hybrid teas, antiques, miniatures and climbers. If you are looking for catalogs and/or websites related to gardening in the United States and Canada check this site out first.  Cyndi Johnson has accumulated over 2,000 links to gardening websites and mail-order companies.  Most entries listed are rated for quality, service, price and breadth of varieties.
Heirloom Roses - St. Paul, Oregon (25 miles from Portland)
Heirloom's Louise and John Clements with their experienced staff grow roses both in the greenhouse and dormant outside. This makes it possible for them to ship roses year round depending only on the weather in your area. Several of Dad's favorite roses were purchased from Heirloom Roses by mail-order.
Nor'East Miniature Roses - Ontario, California
Nor'East is one of the nation's largest and best known mail-order companies devoted exclusively to miniature roses. Carrying over 100 varieties of minis they ship year round, to U. S. destinations only. My father ordered many of his minis by mail from Nor'East Miniatures.
Petaluma Rose Company - Petaluma, California
Although you can order roses directly online Dad usually visited this nursery in person. It is located in the rolling hills of Petaluma about an hour's drive from San Francisco and even less from the city of Napa. Dad liked their selection of modern and old garden roses.
Rose Acres - Diamond Springs, California
Muriel Humenick of Rose Acres, Email Rose Acre, has shared my Dad's love of roses for many years. She is an experienced rose grower of modern and old roses, strong on musk and single. You can get a mail-order catalog by sending her a self-addressed-envelope to 6641 Crystal Blvd.; Diamond Springs, CA 95619 or calling her at (916) 626-1722
Roses of Yesterday and Today - Watsonville, California
The owners of this garden and my father were friends. Their web sites says the garden is open everyday from 9 to 4 and that it has 230 varieties of old, rare, unusual and selected modern roses. It is located in the small town of Watsonville at 803 Brown's Valley Road (831) 728-1901. It might be best to call first if you plan to visit. The web site states they are no longer taking orders for roses as they have discontinued the shipping portion of the business to raise a child.
Sequoia Nursery/Moore Miniature Roses - Visalia, California
This nursery sells mostly own root, pot grown miniature roses as well as a variety of old, modern and some hybrid teas. Ralph Moore has been selling roses for many years and his nursery ships year round in 4" pots. Dad placed orders by mail as well as visited the nursery in Visalia. He and Mr Moore shared a common love for minis so he was pleased with his purchases.
Vintage Gardens Antique Roses - Sebastopol, California
The web site for Vintage Gardens welcomes visitors to their "online catalog of nearly 3000 antique and rare roses." They also seem to be pretty excited about the introduction of their new sized 5" to 6" deep shipping pots they call BANDS. Since this nursery is located in the neighboring county of Sonoma, Dad made the short drive from Napa to make his purchases from them.
Weeks Roses - Ontario, California
This wholesale grower of bareroot roses, offers a broad selection of popular, unusual & AARS-winning roses to nurseries and garden centers throughout the United States.  Have you ever wondered how the pros come up with new roses?  Weeks' 40-picture slide show and story at The Making of a New Rose gives you the answer. Tom Carruth, Weeks Roses Since Dad's garden was also a licensed nursery he did business with Weeks regularly.  Although their web site is a must see for its pictures and information they do not directly sell retail mail-order.  If this changes somebody PLEASE email me and let me know.
We received an email from Tom Carruth, Weeks' lead Hybridizer/Horticulturist, stating the link to their site "works" and thanking us for including them.  Tom went on to say, "I had the pleasure of meeting John and touring the garden in about 87 or 88.  The planting was so stunning and the rose plants so large & healthy.  I was very impressed and passed the word around to many friends." Coming from the man at the helm of a rose grower known as "Tops In Roses" worldwide, this is indeed high praise.  I'm sure my father would have been as delighted as I was when I read this.  Thanks Tom.
