Rose Mosiac Virus @ K&M Roses
Hey guys. Just received my K&M order and 3 out of 11 roses are, without doubt, infected with RMV. Two more are very questionable, but as RMV doesn't always show symptoms, I'll just have to wait and see. This is my third time ordering from K&M and all three times I've gotten infected plants. Mr. Mills always offers the same answer, "It's Iron Deficiency". Obviously I know better. Moral of the story: Buyers Beware! I've spoken with James on a few occasions about the exact varieties affected and nothing has been done to clean them up. Apparently he has some infected mother plants and is choosing to do nothing about it. Mr. Mills may be a very nice gentleman, but his business practices are terrible. He is sending diseased plants all across the country and nobody is doing, or saying, a single thing about it. I, however, refuse to go quietly into the night. If I can open just one persons eyes to this it was all worth it!
