Now I ask you "who doesn't marvel at the smell of an English rose"? The scent is so magnificent and a bowl of just cut roses perfumes the air like no other.

If you have never experienced the scent of a David Austin rose, well then, you are missing out.

This book really goes into his different roses and lets you know for instance, what are climbers etc etc. Descriptions of the individual roses and potential problems are also listed. Basically for anyone who is going to put in David Austin roses you can read up on what would work for you on your property.

In my area of New England there is a nursery that I do a lot of business with. In the Fall they always have an amazing sale to get rid of stock. Well, I scooped up David Austin roses for $10 per 2 gallon pot, compared to the normal $60 each. Yikes, how lucky am I. But this certainly will give readers a suggestion of when to purchase your roses at a reasonable price.

Now, one more thing. I pass this along to those just getting started with growing David Austin roses. Once you experience your first frost, then it is time to prune your roses and get them ready for the Winter. In the North East we experience some mighty cold temps. Roses need to be protected. Take wire, chicken wire is easiest and cut a two foot piece. This will go around each rose. Use wooden garden supports (the green ones that are used for staking flowers) to weave in and out of the wire and drive into the ground so the wire doesn't blow away. Then top dress with seasoned or just dried horse manure and on top of that fill the wire enclosure up with OAK leaves to cover the crown. You are filling the enclosure up about a quarter of the way.

The pictures and descriptions in this book are just amazing. A must have!

If you like English roses, you will enjoy this book tremendously, read it, read it, study it and read and study some more. Some of the roses in the book are no longer available, as far as I know, but it is wonderful to look at them. The book tells all the pros and cons of each rose, assisting you with purchases.

This book has lots of beautiful pics of roses and descriptions of David Austins roses. I am a rose lover and sort of collect rose books, this is one of my gems. It is not a go to guide of how to grow roses. I love looking thru this book in the cold of winter and deciding what new rose I will try in my garden come spring! I look at the pictures and try to imagine how it would look in my garden!

I purchased this as a gift for someone who is starting a David Austin Rose garden. She loved it and feels it is a great guide both for beginner and expert.
