Attention Garden Rose Consumers and Hobbyists
Foundation Plant Services rose sales are primarily intended for the nursery industry. We do not sell potted nor bare root plants. Our products consist of cuttings to be used for propagation. If you are a consumer or hobbyist looking for roses, we recommend that you seek out a commercial nursery to purchase rooted whole plants that are more successful for most garden rose enthusiasts.
