I’m looking at Sam Kedem Nursery for some Buck roses I want for breeding. I would appreciate input on whether you have been generally satisfied or not with their products and services. I don’t necessarily need tons of information, just whether or not you were satisfied.
Do they ship tiny little starts or good size #1 plants.
I like to check out a business before I give them my money.

I have ordered from him 3 or 4 times and have always found the orders satisfactory. He is a good source of hard to find Bucks.
He propagates most Buck roses himself because he cannot buy field grown plants of most of them wholesale from large suppliers. He does a good job, however, because he propagates most of them himself and they sell out so fast, customers often have just the option of a small plant in a quart or gallon sized pot.
Thanks Robert, David, for your responses. I appreciate your input.
I bought some roses from him when I was in Minneapolis – they were all fine.
Another source of Buck roses is Roses Unlimited in Laurens, SC. They pride themselves on having a really extensive list of the Bucks varieties, so if Sam Kedem doesn’t have the one you are looking for, RU might. I buy from RU all the time and have had good experiences always.
