Tentatively, in the first week of May, but may vary by a couple of days. A notification of roses arriving will be posted on our Facebook page about 1-2 weeks ahead of time. Roses can be planted in the garden in early May; they are hardy and won't mind an occasional night freeze.
If you might not be able to pick up and plant your rose promptly, consider selecting "potted plant" option instead.Planting information and growing guide:
