Mum received a similar response from an Adelaide rose nursery. She asked
them to bud some heritage roses especially for her. They did, but then sold
the stock to people from interstate, and didn't inform her until much later.
They even had the nerve to comment how good it was that she had asked for
these unusual roses to be budded. Meaning that when other customers asked
for them out of the blue they were able to supply them!! I don't think
she'll be asking that nursery again.
