If I was the person to decide this ranking, Heirloom is the one of the Top 5 list.
After my 1st order was really made me satisfied (also it's my first own root roses and first rose to received earlier than others), I decide to order again from Heirloom. This time I ordered two David Austin roses, healthy, clean, non complicated professional packaging (Thank you) and of course fast delivery. Thanks again.
I'm sure roses are grow quick as first order, my first roses are ready to bloom in next a week or two. Awesome place to buy healthy roses. Like I said in first comment, plants seem small but there is multiple joints and ready to form bushy growth. I set Heirloom as my future resource to buy own root roses.
On January 26th, 2014, bluebuster77 changed the rating from positive to neutral and added the following:
Unlike latest two negative comments, I've some disappointment with heirloom. I'm huge fan of heirloom over 3 years, even I went to nursery when I visited to Portland. Lately shipping cost is rising and plants are smaller and smaller, some roses are just like little stick. Slowly growing, I was so carful and put more effort not to loose my money..even better I propagate myself some variety from neighbors and friends. I was think twice to order from again. I don't complain if charge high shipping with bigger plants like Roses Unlimited or lower shipping with medium size plants like Rogue Valley

Thanks for reading my feedback. I'm also standing as forever customer for Heirloom. If I think of buying new roses, I always browse your site. My latest experience was really bad. I understand the plants are small but smaller is very unusual. I'm not asking 2' tall plants with lush and blooms. At least some branches with 7"- 9" will be acceptable. I don't complain about roots, however, I put extra effort to rescue the tiny 4" stick to leaves out. I felt like I'm partialy grow this roses to thrive and reach acceptable condition. The plants I purchased during my visit were excellent condition ever. Meaning trust is involve in this case. I didn't leave this feedback if the plants are equally same on both purchases. But I think I will try again!

I am excited about recent feedbacks and ordered few roses for 2015. Like old Heirloom, still thumbs up for email communication as I needs for replacement and some Q/A, shipping speed was fast but no reminder for your package was shipped or tracking information. Plant sizes are still the same as Heirloom's way, short and small but I rely on their GUARANTEE. Wide selection as always Heirloom style but not all roses are actually available, regardless notification on the variety when this rose will be available. Something is not right until I received package with missing rose, which indicates as available the time I placed order. I think still mix feeling about good and bad, and I prefers to keep my feedback as neutral

I never had problem roses died with old heirloom roses in past. But lately I counted about 5 roses died from last few orders. It happened 2-3 months after received them, even under good growing condition. I was doubt how this happen, I grow roses from other suppliers at the same time but rest of the roses grows well and blooms. It is something wrong. When I was contacted about dead roses, they prefers to issue store credit right away than discuss to replace the same variety. After this year I will never going to do business with new Heirloom roses.
On May 7th, 2015, bluebuster77 added the following:
As of today I don't receive one of my rose is suppose to deliver on April. I sent two email but no response. They excited to announced that new owner changed, but I think getting worst than previous Heirloom. They forced to sent me store credit for first dead rose instead of replacement, and no response for another dead rose and one rose I ordered was not deliver. How can I say that this company is professional? Whatever promising or guarantee on their website is false statement. Gardeners beware.

Wow you cannot believe what happen to me even I currently having issue with some dead roses. I made brand new order with just one hybrid tea rose which is really want to add as my hybrid tea collection, I received heathy bushy about foot long plant...nice. Noooo! I realized this band plant has 7-9 leaflets with thin green growing stems and foliage, if you're experienced gardener or rosarian you know what it is. I double checked with few rosaians to make sure it's something wrong, they agree. It's kind of mutiflora root stock plant or wilder variety, also similar to sucker. I fully shocked at this point. But wait more shocking part is this rose has correct label tag of variety I ordered was attached. I'm speechless. I needs to find out more previous roses not yet bloom purchased from Heirloom. Owner response back to me but this is big red flag warning and total lost of trust

AMAZING...I saw the guarantee Heirloom offers on an email from the company so i decided to call about my dead rose !
Wel,, was I in for a shock...they did not have the same rose bush available but kindly offered me a credit or substitute. She was so very helpful and pleasant and the rose is already on the way !

Well, spoke too soon. I was sent, not Jacqueline DuPre, but Jude the Obscure. Naturally, I noticed this when I was watering them and looked closely at the tags. Since this is Saturday, they are not available. I have sent them an email and will let you know the results.

I received my Jacquelyn Dupre today. After sending an email, which was cheerfully responded to, I was sent a lovely little rose, am very satisfied, and will be ordering again. The three roses are excellent, and I should add that it is almost 100 degrees today, and the rose is perfect.

It is now three years since I received my Heirloom Roses. I am changing my rating to neutral because roses I purchased from other companies as much as two years later have greatly outperformed the roses I received from Heirloom. I have over 30 roses, including other Austins, and know how to care for them, and the Jude The Obscure I was given by mistake has produced a total of three flowers since 2012. The Ingenious Mr. Fairchild has produced about 5. Austins I received from Roses Unlimited a year later are literally three times as big and have exploded with flowers. Pickering Roses are four times as big, but I am bearing in mind that they are grafted, and always beat the other roses in bloom and longevity.
Unless I want a rose that only Heirloom has, I will not be ordering in the future.
I only came to Heirloom because they had a rose I really wanted, and because they had a sale. I find it frustrating that three years after acquisition their roses are performing less well than first year plants from other companies with comparable, if not lower, prices.

I ordered two roses in January, scheduled to be shipped the second week of April. On May 10, the roses had still not been shipped and my order status was still pending. Unknowing that I had already ordered a particular rose, my family presented me with one that I had already ordered for Mother's Day. Since my order from heirloom's had not yet shipped, I emailed them to ask for a substitute rose, as I had no need for two of the same kind. I made sure that the rose I was asking for was in stock. I also noted that I was happy to pay any restocking or substitution fees. I received no response from Heirloom, but 5 hours later, I coincidentally received a shipment notice that my order had been shipped. A bit too coincidental for me, considering that my order was a month late late in shipping. Of course, the substitution was not made.

I have ordered a couple of roses from Heirloom Roses, and the plants are always healthy. My husband did order me one around Christmas, and it died, Heirloom was quick to issue a gift certificate to replace it when it gets back in stock. I like that you can order 1 rose at any time without inflated shipping cost. This is still more economical than buying local, and you get a much healthier plant. This could a drawback for me at times because I could order 4 roses from somewhere else with shipping for about $80. They also discontinued several varieties that I had on my wish list which made me sad. They have a nice website with beautiful pictures that is easy to navigate which is helpful. Anytime though that I want beautiful healthy roses, I know Ican count on Heirloom Roses.

I placed an order online for a rose. Due to a website glitch I could not place an order on my iPad so I used the PC to do so. Soon after there was a sale on ramblers and climbers, the website promptly crashed. I called to place my order. The woman I spoke with told me the website was working fine, they just hadn't removed the message about the crash. She attempted to place the order and realized the website had crashed. While I was on the phone with her I received an email the order was placed. She was very surprised she had been successful. The second rose I ordered (by phone) arrived. I went to the website, signed in to check my order and the only order that showed was from 2012. I called and spoke to Linda in customer service. I explained my problem, she kept interrupting and saying if I placed an order by phone it wouldn't be on my account. Even if this was true the online order should show up and it doesn't. I asked why they didn't ship them together and Linda said they were too small and didn't have enough people to do that. I order from many small nurseries and can add to my order until shipping time. They have some serious website issues. I would appreciate customer service understanding my problem instead of insisting there isn't one.

This is the way all companies should be. I called asking about a rose that was out of stock and spoke to Linda, an order specialist. She was helpful and professional and told me that she would check with the growers about availability. Within a couple of hours she responded via email, and although the rose I was interested in was unavailable, she offered a good substitute. I placed an order based on the recommendation and received a confirmation when the order was shipped. Both roses arrived at the time expected, were packed well and were healthy. This was good old fashioned gold standard customer service and I won't hesitate to return to Heirloom Roses.

Earlier this fall I ordered two miniature roses and one climbing rose, Devoniensis. The two miniature roses were a gift for my brother's wife and the Devoniensis is to ramble along the picket fence we built this year. Since fall is more of a rest period for plants, the climber hasn't grown any but is settled into its spot for next spring. The miniature roses I potted up and gave to my sister-in-law who was thrilled. They have an extremely steep front yard and she doesn't want to landscape until they can do some berms or some other serious earthwork, so she thought having two little roses she could easily move around would be perfect. I also ordered some of the metal plant tags you twist onto a branch and have been happy with those as well. Now I can tell what's in my garden after my toddler makes off with the tags I stuck in the ground!
On August 8th, 2014, OldChurchEggery added the following:
I am so happy with the way my roses have flourished and in one case rebounded from apparent death. The original two roses I purchased, Rosa Mundi and Apothecary Rose, bloomed in spades this year! I've not been the best pruner so they look leggy, but I wanted to get the rose hips to mature. It's okay with me because my garden is more cottage style than formal. The Climbing Devoniensis is now a beautiful addition to my picket fence and rewarded me with some amazingly fragrant flowers this May. I can't express just how glad I am to have bought own-root roses because the Devoniensis totally DIED down to the ground for reasons unknown just a few weeks after I planted it. I highly suspect my husband accidentally spilled gasoline or something while doing lawn chores. I left the blackened remains in place thinking "Maybe there's life in the roots" and sure enough, there was! In spring of last year it made a comeback with three new shoots. One was nipped off by a rabbit but the other two are now probably 6 or 7 feet long and had just the prettiest flowers on them. I ordered three other roses from Heirloom last fall- Evelyn, Glamis Castle, and Ginger Syllabub, the last of which is a climber for my new trellis. All three had a few flowers on them this spring so I got to enjoy a little early taste of what's to come. I purchased an "Oh My!" for my aunt, which was shipped in May or so. She has it in a large pot until the soil settles around their house and told me it has about tripled in size and even had flowers on it.

After seeing some of the previous comments for Heirloom, I was hesitant to order. Then I saw that ALL mail order nurseries seem to have at least a few such comments so I took the plunge. In July, ordered 8 roses I've been craving but haven't found locally. Arrived pretty timely & excellently packed. Plants were small, yes, but not twigs. All were healthy & happy. Root systems were tight & definitely ready to come out of their little pots.. Re-potted into 4 gal. pots to grow out, put 4 in my greenhouse (live in Puget Sound area, cool summers) & set out 4 into my rose garden to try outdoor care. Three weeks later, all 8 show new growth & half have buds already. Three cheers for Heirloom!

Ordered Austin rose Hyde Hall (to fill large hole in part sun/part shade spot) on June 12, 2014--arrived June 16. Rose was loosely rooted in damp peat and held together in a plastic bag. It was leafed out; no sign of disease. Dug hole and planted rose upon receipt. June 23, 2014, new leaf growth, didn't droop even though peat fell away when planted. Went through their online catalog made list of future purchases.

My comments don't relate to the roses I received, but to the shipping. The roses were shipped very quickly, and I very much appreciated the fact that they were shipped at the beginning of the week (so they weren't sitting around over a weekend). Most of all, though, I have to comment on the packaging. I have NEVER seen such wonderful packaging for mail-order plants. Plastic surrounded the pots so soil didn't spill out, and a cardboard insert ingeniously kept the pots/plants in place within the shipping container. I am very impressed, and I'll be ordering more.

I ordered an everblooming climbing Cecile Brunner from them last spring. It arrived healthy and undamaged. Packaging was done really well. I planted it right away and watched it grow. By the end of the summer, I noticed it had only grown about 12-18 inches high and looked more bush-like, but I thought maybe it needed more time to settle in. Well, this winter was a very harsh one in our climate and we had crazy spring temps too that went from below freezing to the mid 70's all in one day. This happened most of early spring. I kept watching the plant and it appeared that all the previous years growth had died and it was resprouting from the roots but more in a bush form again. In the meantime, I ordered another of the exact same kind for this spring to plant in a different place along my fence line. (trying to cover a 40ft section of chainlink) It arrived healthy and undamaged as well. I contacted Heirloom about the plant from last year looking like a bush form and the dieback and that I really needed the climber for the fence. I also sent them pics. They not only replaced the original one with another, but they also sent me another one for the one I ordered this spring just in case it isn't the climbing one. They told me to keep the ones they originally sent and sent me 2 more of the everblooming climbing Cecile Brunner which both arrived healthy and doing wonderfully in the ground. These new ones do look slightly different than the ones they originally sent me as these look like they do have canes at the base instead of a trunk and then a vase-like bush. I can't speak enough about how polite and prompt they were with addressing my situation and apologizing for any mix-ups. I can easily see how it could've happened. It would be VERY difficult to tell them apart if not almost impossible if they weren't labelled right away or improperly labelled. I will definitely be doing business with them again just because of their great customer service and how beautiful and healthy the plants are.

I purchased approximately 19 roses from Heirloom roses at around 03/13. The roses did come as small cuttings, which was very different than receiving bare root or in a container. They all grew pretty well except for one which was promptly replaced by Heirloom. Also at that time, I voiced my concerns about some of the roses not having a scent. I really don't remember them offering to replace these roses. First is the rose itself and does it have a fragrance? Smell the roses! Out off the 19 so far, 2 are the miniature rose and fragrance was not an issue. Everest Double Fragrance has some fragrance, but nothing huge. Hot Cocoa has none. Heirloom none, Royal Pageant beautiful, little fragrance, Star of the Nile, small, very little fragrance, Special Occasion, small, little fragrance, New Day, little scent, Sleeping Beauty little fragrance, Velvet Fragrance, little. New Dawn fragrant, Honore de Balzac fragrant, Paradise, Fragrant. Memorial Day, no roses, Zephirine Drouhin no roses. These roses are beautiful, but again no scent. What would all of you do?

After reading the recent comments on this page, I was sort of expecting my new rose (a birthday present for a family member) to come in a 1-gallon pot, but no matter. I've been a customer of Heirloom Roses for years, and have come to appreciate the 3-inch pots that their roses have always come in. My new "Heart O Gold" rose was in transit for over 5 days, but arrived healthy and perky a few days ago. It hasn't gone in the ground yet, but endured 1/2 inch of unexpected snow night before last, sitting on my deck, and came through with flying colors. I expect that once it is planted, it will do as well as the other 7 Heirloom Roses I have, and be wonderful. Unless Ben does something terrible in the new management of the company (which I doubt will happen), I shall remain a loyal customer.

I ordered 8 own-root roses from Heirloom Roses a little over a week ago. In the process, I realized I over-ordered my pinks and needed to switch out a rose for a peach. Since I had not received the shipping detail yet I called and asked for them to swap out a rose for me. They were in the process of changing out their ordering system and said they would take note and confirm the swap. Well low and behold I got the order and I got the beautiful Kathryn Morley instead of the Alchemist, which I had wanted swapped in for the KM. Shoot. I sent an email telling them about the mistake and they promised to send me the Alchemist to make up for it. Today, I got a healthy Alchemist and I am thrilled to say the other eight are growing fast and furious. I would order from HR again and again and it seems Mr. Hanna and his team are serious business people running a stellar company. Congratulations, seems a lot of work has been put into the new purchase.

Ben Hanna talked to me by phone and told me he had recently bought the business "Heirloom Roses". This spring he will start selling his roses in 1 gallon pots like Chamblee's and several other growers do, so there won't be any more barely rooted cuttings going out.
Even though he was not the owner when I had my problems with the 3 incorrect varieties sent to me, and even though, as I said in my first note it was not a current problem, he has insisted on sending correctly identified replacements when the weather permits this spring. He is going to grow them out in the greenhouse and doublecheck they are the correct varieties.
He would not accept any payment, even for shipping. I feel this is very generous from a person who was not responsible for my problems. It looks like Heirloom Roses will be operating under a much improved business model, and I expect I will return as a customer.

I have to add, after 5 years, all the roses I purchased from Heirloom became the stars of my garden. The Super Dorothy roses have completely covered a trellis, and with the spring bloom, it looks like it is dripping with pink grapes from the distance.
The fact that they are on their own root system and not grafted really seems to have a big impact on the health of the plant, and they aren't prone to suckering like grafted plants are.
Big props to this company. Don't let the fact that the plants are shipped small scare you. For the long run, Heirloom Roses provide the best product.

I have purchased more than 20 roses from Heirloom Roses as either gifts or to plant myself over the last 8-10 years. The roses do come in the mail as very small plants. There are only a few twigs with leaves. However, I planted an April Moon, purchased on sale, 3 weeks ago that has already tripled in size.

Two years ago I planted 55 roses from this company. I ordered more (lost count) last year. No special care. All but one are thriving. Ordered another 33 this year. I was skeptical at first, but I've been growing roses for 40 years and I am convinced this is the best product on the market. Get them small and bareroot and they'll adjust to your garden conditions, unlike others that do well for a couple of years and then peter out. Haven't had to test their customer service as everything I've ordered has been delivered when expected and in perfect condition.

I almost forgot. I also ordered and planted the Comtes de Champagne. It bloomed once and now has 3 additional buds. The first bud, although only 2 months old, was absolutely gorgeous. It's growing very nicely.

I bought 10 roses from heirloom roses for the first time. I was nervous about the order but was elated on opening the box when it arrived. They were packed beautifully, were of very vigorous growth signs,very nice size all were more than 10 inches from soil level atleast or more and are now in my garden already flowering this very year and showing very nice growth.I will always buy from this company in the future as i have ordered roses from another online website but they lacked the vigor that this company roses had.Thanks a bunch for what you do!

My initial review is a 5 out of 5! I ordered a David Austin 'Charlotte' rose for my grandmother as a Mother's Day gift. The order was placed after business hours via the website on 05/08/12. I didn't think the rose would make it to her on time, but to my surprise it arrived today, the day before Mother's Day. The order was processed, shipped & arrived all in 4 days! My Grammy called me to thank me, she said the plant itself is potted in a small black pot consistent with the pics on Heirloom Rose's site. The plant looks vigorous & was not wilted even though it has been in the high 80's the last couple of days.

I ordered eight more roses this winter (January). My order arrived exactly on time today. The roses look great--small, but healthy and strong.
Unfortunately, half my order (four of my eight roses) were not included. A packing slip indicated that they would ship in a 'couple weeks', which was disappointing, as I have already dug the holes and prepped the site. It's a very warm spring (92 already today), so I'm a little worried. I would have liked a note to warn me about the delay. I'll update when the other half of my order arrives.

All of my roses arrived! They were just shipped in different boxes--again beautifully packed, strong specimens with good leaves, healthy, moist soil.
A quick little update on last year's roses. As I mentioned, I'd ordered a couple of roses last spring/summer. As of now, Lady of the Myst is a solid four feet with many blooms. Jayne Austin is even more vigorous, a strong plant that keeps growing and growing and growing. I suspect it of planning world domination. Seriously, Jayne is a very large rose already--it's true what they say about the Austins, I think, that their sizes are based on English gardens and they will get quite a bit bigger in warmer climes. Despite the many bugs/insects in my area, these roses are in great shape.
