Still considered as postive for their effort and customer services. But I\\\'m thinking to order next time or not. I like their rare selection but roses are grow slow and not very stong performers compare to other bare root roses that I bought from other sources. I\\\'m very impressed when I received the bareroots but disappointed their growth even I followd the detail instructions. However, I\\\'m glad that I have a Twillight Zone, GF 2013 from Edmund
On February 4th, 2013, bluebuster77 changed the rating from positive to negative and added the following:
First of all I like to say 70-80% Edmunds bare root roses from last year were not really success. Edmunds offered rare and new roses every year as usual but I was think twice to avoid disappointment happened again. This year I purchased most my roses from local nurseries, however, I want some hard to find roses from Edmunds. So I ordered Kerdinal and LeAnn Rimes roses, plus I sent the note to provide healthy roses as possible. But my dream not came true cause by poor packaging and sent me one low grade rose ( I will say 1/2 grade rose). Package is arrived today, roots are exposed in the boxed during shipping, roots and moisture protection plastic bag was separated because they were not securely tie the bag. Means.. roots and canes are dried and dehydrated. Canes are shrinked and only hope is roots, their roses have long big roots, expecting to recover from dehydration. I will says I order roses for grow, not for rescue. This will be my last time ever order from Edmunds Roses.

Not to mentioned another rose has one big cane, one pencil size cane and two tiny canes. Is this called 1-1/2 grade?
On March 23rd, 2014, bluebuster77 added the following:
As I expected base on what happen in past, I don\\\'t continue order bare roots from Edmunds. However I am interested on winter sun hybrid tea own root that they offered. Package arrived today, all dirt falling apart in the box. Roots are loosely exposed and most branches and buds are broken. The worse packaging ever, of course they have no idea how to package potted plants. Quart pot rose is only wrap with nursery wrap paper, no tape or seal on it. I wait and see my rose is grow. I think NO edmunds roses in future.
On March 12th, 2015, bluebuster77 changed the rating from negative to positive and added the following:
I think much improved than past and deliver quality products as expected. I stay away from buying grafted bare root online until I make this purchase. Edmunds has some rare variety I don\'t want to missed. We having little issue with middle man (FedEx) for some delay delivery but Edmunds packaging was perfectly keep bare roots moist and received in great condition. Good size bare roots. Communication and response is A+++. I hoping to do more business with this company.

Love to deal with Edmund's roses. One thing whether big plant or small, all roses from Edmund's are thrive and blooms. Fast shipping too. I purchased several years from Edmund's Roses whoever owner is, none of roses are dead. I collected some exclusive roses from them. Hope to see more exclusive roses.

UPDATE - FEBRUARY 14, 2017
ORDER 1: Ordered six roses. Roses spent five days in transit, arrived somewhat dry. Hydrated overnight, planted in \\\"ideal conditions\\\" - newly prepared rose bed (full sun, amended soil).
All sulked for two weeks.
2 budded normally after two weeks.
2 budded very slowly during week three.
2 still haven\\\'t budded, one has significant dieback.
ORDER 2: Ordered seven roses 1-18-17,
2-7 no roses, so called and was told \\\"we are holding your order waiting on one rose.\\\" I said, please ship immediately as I am at end of bare root planting season for my area. Edmunds promised to ship immediately.
2-8 credit card showed Edmunds had refunded price of non-available rose, so I figured it was all under control.
2-14 just received email from Edmunds stating that seven roses shipped on 2-10 and will arrive 2-16, meaning they will be six days in transit.
On May 15th, 2017, quitaque changed the rating from neutral to positive and added the following:
I\'m changing my rating from neutral to positive. The bottom line is, I ordered thirteen roses, they couldn\'t get one of the thirteen, so they refunded the amount I\'d paid for that one and shipped me twelve. Several of the twelve were slow to bud and had dieback issues, but I was patient with them and, as of today\'s date, they have all recovered and are doing well. So bottom line is, things worked out okay.

P.S. My original comment on Edmunds Roses included a favorable mention of Rogue Valley Roses. Rogue Valley Roses recently changed management and the new management is horrible to deal with. So, my final recommendation is, Edmunds is fine, RVR stay away.

We ordered 5 Sheila's Perfume roses about two months ago. They arrived bare root and dormant as expected, with a few eyes on each plant. I clipped each eye as suggested by a grower, and all 5 plants are established and growing a ton now. I can't wait to see some blooms!

I don't understand why anyone has a negative comment about Edmonds roses, I just received my latest shipment (in Feb.) And, because we have had such a super mild Winter, promptly planted them (they have to be put in huge pots due to a nasty vole problem) and today I counted 23 new shoots on the 'Black Baccara' and 29 on the 'Big Purple'. I received a credit for $10 on the 'Black Night' because, as noted by Edmonds, " the rootstock was not to their standard". This credit was sent by Edmonds, not at my request. Barring anything catastrophic happening, so far all the roses I have received, both this year and last, have been and are performing fantastically. So far I would be hard put to it to say anything negative about either the shipping, quality or customer service.

I read the reviews and wasn't sure if I should order from them, but they were the only one that carried both the roses (Blanc Double De Coubert and Zephirine Droughin) I wanted and a reasonable price.

I could not be more pleased with the plants I received, my interactions with and the support received from this company. They offer the same old-fashioned, no questions asked support that I had been used to receiving decades ago but has become very hard to find with most large nurseries today. I placed a sizable order of about 10 rose bushes and 8 Hydrangeas. All the plants I ordered were received in good and healthy condition. One rose bush did not respond well and one Hydrangea arrived with some sprigs of green but had declined after I received it. This was possibly due to my own overwatering or that they just didn't make it through their winter dormancy. In either case, they were replaced without question with nice, healthy plants and at no cost to me. The rose bushes were nicer than anything I had received from David Austin roses in the past 30 years of dealing with them. All of my business will be going to Edmund's Roses from now on. I appreciate their people and the trustworthy, considerate way that they conduct business. Thank you Edmund's for making my plant ordering worry free!

Usually, I feel pretty strongly when giving a rating for a company. In this case, I had to actually list all the positives, neutrals, and negatives about my experience with ordering from Edmunds to come up with a rating, and am fairly settling on a positive rating for now.

I haven't bought from Edmunds in a couple of years because I had a great deal of trouble getting their bare root roses to come out of dormancy.
Well, they must have changed. To date I've bought 5 bareroot roses from them and it took me 2 weeks and they are growing like troupers. I am more than satisfied with my purchase. I will look at them again in the future.

Still satisfied. Love the plant markers. I have received 5 roses so far in excellent health. for those saying that the roses didn't make it over winter. this was a tough winter especially on grafted roses.

Edmunds Roses shipped one hybrid rugosa Blanc Double de Coubert Rose to me on March 16. If this plant were fauna, it would look like an octopus. The heavy rootstock featured no less than 13 stems projecting from one side! The instructions said most plants they shipped would arrive dormant and would probably take a week or so to break dormancy. The warm weather and the number of days in transit from Wisconsin to south Louisiana helped the plant sprout enroute. I opened the package and found about 20 pale yellowish white sprouts ready to receive sunshine and start making chlorophyll and turning green. Judging on size and vigor and the large diameter of the rootstock, not to mention the whopping root system that would choke an ox, this plant would win a blue ribbon for dormant roses at the county fair. Anybody who wants to order a rugosa rose riproaring and raring to grow, order from Edmunds roses. They will hear from me again next year.

I received 2 Eden Climbers today and was so elated over the quality of the roses that I promptly called customer service and ordered 3 more roses. The roots were extensive and there were many big, thick, canes! This was by far the best mail order shipment of roses I have ever received!

in spring 2011 I ordered 3 roses from Edmunds'. I was quite unsatisfied with what I got. The Elina had very thin roots and tops. Only one Touch of Class cane sprouted. The Olympiad turned out so-so.

I ordered one Drop Dead Red Floribunda rose, received it promptly, packaged well and already had new growth on it and it was much larger than the ones I ordered from HLR. Followed their directions in their enclosed pamphlet, to soak them for 12 hours, planted as instructed-so now lets see how it does. I always order only 1 item when trying a new company and wait to see how they do and how their plants do. I will report back with the progress of the rose.

I ordered roses from Edmunds' Roses two years ago and again this year. Both times, the bare root roses I received were leafing out and sent at exactly the right time. The roses we ordered this year are flourishing despite the delay in planting and poor care they received from our landscaper. We're back to doing our own yard work. My co-workers are all impressed with the beautiful roses I bring to work on a regular basis. I will definitely order from them again.

This is the third year I have ordered from Edmunds. Each year the bare root stock arrives well and is hardy enough to get through our unpredictable springs. Yes, I have lost some to hard winters and dry falls, but I would blame that on variety not quality of the grower. I had over 20 plants sent for this year and not a one looks in bad shape or questionable about its start. Their selection is also large enough to keep me creating new rose beds for many years to come.

Have purchased from them the past three years no problems but one and it was taken care of beyond my expectations in a quick and courteous manner . They offer so many new cultivars that are not yet on the market and the prices cant be beat ! Keep in mind if you do not know about bare root roses this is not the place to order from , for those who do this is a wonderful source of hard to find gems ! I have several varieties I have ordered from them Fourth of july , soaring spirits , white out , rock and roll bulls eye from eyeconic series . Never a mishap always true to variety on strong rootstock and healthy bud union . I have found that they also have better disease tolerance than potted also . I am a lifetime customer and recommend them for bare root to anyone .

Received 2 bare root roses from this company. A little long on the shipping time with no communication. But good customer service when I called to inquire of shipping date.

I ordered two bare root roses (one hybrid tea and one floribunda)-followed the great instruction pamphlet, being cold in Minnesota, had to hold them (according to instructions) for a week, put them in and as claimed in two weeks canes began to emerge. I am a beginner, but even with lousy weather, they appear as ordered and so far (unless I screw up) very healthy. Thanks Edmunds.

Ordered 2 rose bushes (Rouge Royal & Betty White) 12-4-2010, arrived today, 2-23-2011 - Both received in fine condition! Sturdy 8x8x24 box, roots wrapped in damp moss secured by twine and contained in a plastic bag. Both have metal identity tags and buds were swelling slightly. Very pleased with my purchase from Edmunds' Roses - Will purchase from Edmunds' Roses again.

two weeks later, the Folklore rose is leafing out very well. It started to grow almost immediately. Bella-roma doesn't appear to be doing much (this rose was a bit more pathetic when it arrived: only 3 canes, one of which was dead, and all canes fairly brown), but I dug down into the peat moss and compost over the crown and canes and found that it, too, is sprouting. It's much, much slower than Folklore, but it is growing. Edmunds offered to refund my purchase for the bella-roma within the first week (when there was no sign of growth.) I declined, opting to give it a bit more time.
If I had it to do over again, I would just buy potted roses at my local nursery, which is selling 5 gallon roses for 14.99. I paid almost that much for the sad bare roots. But I have no complaints about Edmunds; even though they sent a sad Bella'Roma, they did offer a refund immediately (with no questions asked.)

Contrary to Russ' note below, ordering from Edmunds did not put me on any postal or email lists for other plant companies. I am a fanatic about getting off junk mail lists, so I get very little, and I would have noticed new ones showing up.
It's been my experience that when I phone a junk mailer, the phone person has no idea how my name got on the list, so I think the Jung's person may have misinformed Russ.

I ordered 7 roses and they arrived looking like typical healthy own root bare root roses. 6 grew well and one never leafed out and was quickly and politely replaced. However,I ordered 11 potted cutting own root roses from another company at the same time. The potted cutting roses are out growing the originally much larger barefoot roses from Edmunds. The form of the own root from cutting potted roses is much more pleasing. I do think Edmunds did a great job. I don't think I would order bare root roses again, but if I did I would order from Edmunds.

I received my order today. I ordered a candy land climbing rose and a purple splash climbing rose. They came with sprouts on them, they were covered with peat moss. They have very good instructions, and I have high hopes that they will bloom this year. Very good bare root roses.

I just finished a 20-minute long phone conversation with customer service at Edmunds Roses. The woman I spoke with was very nice, answered each of my questions and took as much time as was needed. Edmunds was sold out of the rose I wanted, but based on how well I was treated on the phone, I will definetely check back with them next year to get the rose I want.

In april i made my first order to Edmunds Roses. I took advantage of their sale of 10 roses for $10 each. In all i ordered 15 roses from them. The roses arrived in a timed fashion, an they were outstanding. Not only did I get great roses, but it was nice to receive a free gardeners tote bag along with my order, (I use my bag daily). I had a problem with one of the roses, called and expressed my concerns, and was given the option for a replacement, but I decided to wait and see what the rose would do. I hoped it would get better once planted, but it did not. I called a couple of months later and was sent a replacement rose immediately.

This is another example of a company I ordered from specifically because of the reviews I read on this site. I wasn't even sure I was going to order a rose, but after reading the reviews here and looking around the site I found one I "had to have."

I just received my first order from Edmunds. Ordered back in Jan on a snow day and specified the shipping date hoping it would work out. The roses arrived exactly when I wanted and are larger than other bareroot roses I've ordered. I only just planted them a week ago but so far so good.

This is the first time I've ordered from Edmunds. Few places had the particular Easy Elegance roses I wanted. I received my 4 bare-root roses this week and planted them yesterday. They looked fine and hopefully they will grow for me. While the website has a large time frame for when delivery might be made for my zone, after emailing them, they confirmed that they would ship my roses for when I wanted them.

I ordered two roses from Edmunds in January 2007. The order that came was timely and the roses looked very good. As with bare root roses, survivorship is always questionable. One of my roses just did not survive after planting. I called Edmunds and they were very nice and made some suggestions on what to do to maybe get the rose to survive. It did not, so I called them back and they are sending me a new one next spring. I believe that it is difficult for a business to just "replace" orders when they do not know for sure the cause of the death of the plant. In this case the plant died. They made it right by agreeing to replace it. That is good customer service.

I ordered a rose from them in 2006 before they changed hands (sold to Jungs) and it was a nice large bare root delivered as promised. I ordered another rose from them early this year, and since it was a rather limited distribution rose (Falling in Love) I thought if there was going to be any mix up because of the new company this would probably be the rose that would "fail to show up". I was wrong. The rose arrived when specified and was in good shape. I don't know what the future will bring, but having ordered from Jung seeds in the past with 100% satisfaction, I can't see why it wouldn't be a good place for roses too.

I ordered a bare root rose in late May holding my breath on what may come and to my surprise it was outstanding. Customer service was great, I had the rose overnighted and it was delivered in less than 24 hours!! Edmunds roses directions on how to plant the rose were perfect and they made a point of telling you common errors that people make when planting bare root roses. Two weeks later I have the rose (Crimson Bouquet) I could not find any where else and it's doing great. Thanks Edmunds!!
