This is a good book for people who would like to grow nice roses in the colder area of the USA. It was written mostly for people who live in very cold climates but it is a good book for the rest of the country also. Lots of pictures and list of roses that will survive the cold weather.
This isn't a coffee-table picture book of roses, but an information-packed tome by very, very experienced rosarians who have gardened in the upper Midwest for many, many years. Their descriptions of roses are both extensive and succinct; their directions for selecting and planting roses, caring for roses, and especially for getting roses through the winter are excellent, sufficiently detailed for new growers and sufficiently advanced for growers seeking to improve existing skills and knowledge.
A easy to read and comprehensive book that provides everything you need to know about purchasing and caring for roses. The pictures are great. I love the information regarding the varieties of roses available. This is a must have book for Rose lovers!
Lots of information on getting roses to grow in cold areas, looking forward to learning more to nurture and enjoy the fragrant blooms
