I've gone there several times. Good prices. Great selection. The people who work there are always willing to stop and answer questions. They are helpful and informative, and they juggle customers well.
We have previously dealt with this company before and it was okay (although the plants were poorly packaged). However, this recent experience (or non-experience) that we had is quite frustrating. Emails and order inquiries were ignored. I don't know if they are too busy to be bothered or perhaps their email was down, but regardless we heard nothing for months (and still have not). Most places would have shipped their plants and plantings would have been done by now. Since it is already way into the planting season, a friend recommended that we ordered our roses from another place which we end up doing.
While visiting Victoria recently I bought 4 ramblers, (Ghislaine de Féligonde & Paul Transon), and was impressed with the stage of growth of the plants and their health. The staff were also helpful and knowledgeable. They have a very broad catalogue, particularly for older roses.

Their own root roses are well established and grow well. They are also disease free. Customer service is excellent.
