Wanted: any roses you're planning to shovel prune

I've noticed from reading many threads that there are many instances that people shovel prune roses that others say do well for them.

Well, call me a glutton for punishment, but I want your unwanted roses. As long as they aren't dead, that is.

So, if anyone has any they are planning to chuck, and would send to me for postage, please let me know.

FWIW - I'm only interested in roses that look like roses. For instance, I personally do not care for Knock Out roses, or any others with similarly shaped blooms. No offense to anyone who does like them, but they just don't look like roses to me. And if I'm going to have a rose, I want one that looks like a rose. ;^)

RE: Wanted: any roses you're planning to shovel prune

I have a beautiful old fashioned rose bush that loves to sucker. I usually shovel prune. The bush is over 6' tall (I like to prune) and has clusters of small white flowers. They start out with a pinkish tinge, but once they're open, they're whiter, with a yellow center. Very fragrant. I'd be happy to let you have them, the only thing I'm worried about is getting them to you. Do you have any suggestions? The USPS has flat rate boxes for $8.95. I thought I might be able to use that. Let me know your thoughts.
