Customers can order own root roses in one gallon pots by sending their name, mailing address, phone number and a request to subscribe to the free picture-newsletter in an email ( contact me ) along with a list of what they want. When plants flower proving the variety I will take pictures to publish in the newsletter and place ordered plants to the side giving priority to those who ordered earliest in the year. After the Agricultural Inspector Inspects those plants being shipped outside of New York I'll call those customers back and tell them how much to send me in a check. As soon as the check clears we can send the plants. We can send 2 one gallon potted plants in a large flat rate priority package from the US Post Office across the street for around $18.00 postage as of June 2015.
As of 2014 a 2 year old own root rose in a one or two gallon pot is $15 plus 8% tax.
