Calvin Boutte told me that they are in the process of building a website. It will have photos of all the roses they carry. Can't wait! Get out the checkbook.
Be sure and give us the address just as soon as you find out what it is. This is great news!
How Maaaahh-velous!!! I am excited by this news.
Send me an e-mail and let me know when they have a web site up and running. Howard
are they up and running yet?
Is there a current phone number or fax number to use? Thanks for your help.
Try calling Calvin Boutte at ()337) 394-5662. That is the latest info I have.
The Nashville Rose Society every spring does a big buy from vendors.
On their website (linked below) is a link to a list of roses on Fortuniana that may incorporates both J&M and Becnel/Boutte's lists. It's an extensive list that may give you a place to start as well as names and phone numbers of folks who may be able to help you.

I spoke with Calvin this past week. He is just getting the website started... he is working slowing on getting original photos posted but you are welcome to check it out in its infancy

Bravo Calvin! So far, SO BEAUTIFUL!
We LOVE all of our JB roses, they are doing very, very well in their new raised beds.
Johnny is smiling - no doubt. :~)
I have never bought from them. Are they good? I purchased some fortuniana J&P roses from merrygro.com this week and liked them a lot. They were much less expensive then what I saw on JB site but you never know. Please let me know your experience.
I've been buying from Becnel for years. Top quality roses budded on fortuniana. If you can grow fortuniana roses, this is a good spot to start.
Thanks for the info. I'll consider trying them. Merry Gro is right in your back yard aren't they. What success have you had with their product. J&P could have worked with a lot of different companies and picked Merry Gro in Florida. I'm envious although online puchasing sure made getting the roses easy.
Well how about that. Where have I been and not knew they got a website up. That looks so GOOD. What would Johnny had thought of this. Bet he is beaming from...one wing to the other. Somebody been doing some work. Those pictures are really doing a job on these eyes and I really do not think that I need to see that sort of eye candy. I am about done in with all these roses and really going to go slower.....
Calvin was at our club last month. I waited and waited for March. Never would I had missed hearing Calvin. NEVER! I do not even know where March went and it just passed me by till the late middle that I froze in spot when it dawned on me....I honestly lost March. Heard everybody took notes and they are still talking Calvin last night! I was just sick! Maybe Calvin should email me his written notes. It was not right me not being there.
I live just too far from everyone. I sure hope this sight does not become dangerous for me. Them pictures are pretty. Those others need to say blank. Bad for a rose addict. Very bad. But too good.
I was going to browse Calvin's roses this evening.... and the Johnny Becnel Show Roses website is down! Or did the web address change?
I just checked my listing and it worked. Below is the address I used:

The links don't come up.
They've been gone for a few years. K$M Roses, Cool Roses and Nelsons FL Roses are the only nurseries that I know that carry roses on fortuniana root stock.
