FYI- Sheila Holmes still selling Eskine roses

I had mentioned awhile back in one of the threads that Sheila Holmes' website seemed to be down, and I couldn't get ahold of her through email. She is the lady who took over selling Robert Erskine roses, she also has some Skinner roses and maybe 1 or 2 others.

Anyway, I had sent a letter to her address as a last effort, and today I got an email response! She said she had trouble with the email on her website not working, and she didn't have time to fiddle with it, so she gave up on the site. She said she is/was selling the roses on kijiji, and that I am welcome to pass her email on to others that are seeking a particular Erskine rose.

The email is

You may have to be patient, she said she couldn't find her rose list, and that she might have to wait until the snow melts so that she can see the tags of what she has available this year. She said she knows she has lots of Prairie Peace available. Anyway, I thought the information was worth is good to know that these hard-to-find varieties are still being sold!

Thanks for the info. I ordered 2 prairie Peace. I love my Hazeldean but I think these will be even nicer.

You will love Prairie Peace..she is by far my most reliable rose, and the color is just stunning. I wish she bloomed more throughout the summer, but, she is amazing when in bloom and has a decent golden-orange fall color.
