Author: Bobby J Ward

Roses are the best loved of all garden plants. For beauty and variety of flower, and sweetness of scent, they are incomparable. However, they are not the easiest plants to use in the garden, and to encourage their glorious best they must be used with care. Enhanced by more than 200 color photos, Gardening with Roses is a practical and inspirational guide in which Patrick Taylor selects the best varieties, describes their special virtues, and explains how to use them effectively. Full information is given on hardiness and cultivation. The 'Rose Directory' at the heart of the book pays special attention to flower color and scent, the character of the leaf, as well as the plant habit.

"The value of the volume as a means of identification through the unusually good photos that accompany the text will be significant."

An expert plantsman-photographer's personal choice of the most suitable roses for every garden purpose, with suggestions for companion plants and notes on cultivation.

"The 200 color photos will guide and inspire."
