Canon 60mm Macro to Tamron 90mm

Hi All

I love Macro work and at the moment I have a Canon 60mm Macro lens on my 60D. It takes great pictures and doubles perfectly as a portrait lens however, I have come across the Tamron 90mm and I'm wondering if the extra 30mm on the Tamron will give me a noticeable difference in working distance. My main macro subjects are of the botanical variety and other still subjects. Has anybody used the two and in your opinions, is it worth getting the Tamron? Unfortunately, I live in a world where I can't just walk into a shop and try these things, so advice is helpful before I take a plunge. Thanks.
