Some shelf wear. Glossary. Index.
Roses are one of the world's favourite flowers, and their sweet scent and long-lasting beauty makes them indispensible in the garden.
With over 200 varieties described "and photographed, this book helps you to choose the right plant for your situation, from a free-flowering old rose to an eye-catching modern rose; from a vigorous climber to a delicate miniature rose.
The comprehensive Grower's Guide section shows how to maintain your roses in good condition. Clear text and step-bystep photographs explain how to select healthy specimens, how to plant them, when (and what) to prune and how to propagate new plants.
Whether they are grown singly, en masse or in conjunction with other plants, as hedges or ground cover, winding through a tree or in containers, there is a place in every garden for a rose.
