I know there are many places to buy rose bushes in Tyler but I'm sure not all are 'created equal.' Can someone give me suggestions of a good reliable place to buy healthy bushes in the area? We are visiting there next week and have orders to bring back several bushes for friends.

Any recommendations will be appreciated. TIA!!

Many years ago, I knew a fellow who worked at a floral shop there, but I'm not sure if that place is still there today. You may consider a nursery, and you'd think there'd be plenty of those around the Tyler area.

Here goes: Names and phone number only: many different locations: have a map?
Better known nursery names:

Breedlove 903-597-7421
Chamblee's 903-882-5153
Harris 903-593-8846
Ingram 903-592-7034
J.R. Lockhart 903-561-0276

The above have been here for years. Several others, I'm just not familiar with.

Broohsire Grocery Stores: however, maybe not best quality

Welcome on your visit !! Trees should still be beautiful.

Drive around and "the loop" and take a "look" at The Cascades Development - really nice wilth high rise, condos on the lake, huge country club, many million dollar homes trees, hills - really is impressive - This is off the West Loop look for Greenbriar Lake Road - West Side of West Loop. Enjoy

Gayle: Forgot to tell you, roses can be difficult to grow in may areas of Texas, as you probably no. Be sure to ask instructions for your type soil. Many more residents in Tyler have been planting Azaleas which many allow to grow up to the roof tops.. So popular are the "driving" trails in town in late March or early April that many bus loads of tourists arrive from DFW and others areas, attendance of about 100,000.

These rose bushes will be going to NW Texas....good soil but may not have enough iron without some supplements - I'll mention that to them.

Yes, the Azalea Trails are worth the drive to Tyler.....just beautiful!
