Ask any rosarian in the United States, and the name Chamblee's will be a familiar one. They are quite popular as a mail order rose supplier. They are also located in Tyler, Texas, so I don't usually order my roses - I go get them! I thought you would enjoy a look at this famous rose nursery.
A sign advertises that you have arrived. 85 degrees (F) - fairly cool today!
Row after row of greenhouses hold roses.
Inside, everything is arranged alphabetically. Earthkind roses are designated with a special sign. Austin roses are arranged alphabetically in their own special section.
Very neat, clean, and user friendly.
Just grab a cart and start loading up!
Knowledgeable staff always asks if help is needed. Sometimes I pump them for information; other times I just wander around, or take a list (not necessarily sticking to it).
Check out in the office is swift, easy, and air-conditioned!
But - do you want to know a secret?
If you visit in person, there is always a section of roses on sale! These are just the few leftovers of the varieties they no long list. At usually $5.00 a rose, it's a great place to start shopping - or finish!
Disclaimer: I receive no discount, no favors, and am not related in any way to the Chamblees.
Although - I do purchase so much, they once asked if I was a wholesaler!
