No problems in first time. I purchased dazon of roses and arrived safely with lush and loads of buds. James and Daisy are amazing couple and take business seriously. Effective communication and lots of variety to choose over website. Smart packaging and fast shipping, also nice size plants. I definitely looking forward to buy from them again! Only issues are cannot purchase over the web, no current update on inventory (but they reply back if variety is sold out) and require to send check.
With the help of others on this site I FINALLY tracked down the First Kiss roses I was long searching for. All four of the bushes I ordered arrived in record time. Each was full of buds and blooms. ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS. Their website gives complete instructions on planting and care. I have already recommended the site to others!
Mr. Mills is one of the few growers who still offers potted plants on Fortuniana rootstock. He has a wonderful selection (much larger than just the ones listed on 'HelpMeFind') and sends healthy, large plants. He is quite popular among the southern rose clubs for group sales and he and wife often bring their plants to shows. Mr. Mills was selected as the grower to provide literally hundreds of plants to establish the Ollie Steele Burden rose garden here in Baton Rouge... and that's quite a recommendation by itself. Unfortunately, his order process is quite antiquated and it can be difficult to determine what's availabe at the time you want it. In this day of online payments, it's also a bit annoying to snail mail the payment and then wait for the plants. However, once you receive his lovely plants, you will be glad you went through all the trouble to complete the order! A+++ Ev =)

JIM AND DAISY MILLS GROW BEAUTIFUL ROSES.THEY VERY HELPFUL IN PROVIDING TOP QUALITY ROSES FOR EVEN THE MOST PICKY PEOPLE. I HAVE BEEN GETTING GRAFTED ROSES FROM THEM FOR OVER A YEAR OR SO AND I'VE ALWAYS BEEN SATISFIED.THEIR ROSES ARE A WELCOME ADDITION TO ANY BEAUTIFUL ROSE GARDEN. SARAH MICHAELIDES
