From the Back Cover

Growing Beautiful Roses: Your Guide to Creating an Easy-Care Garden Full of Fragrance and Color

Have you always wanted to plant roses but are afraid they are too difficult to grow? Fear no more. Growing Beautiful Roses takes the intimidation (and the chemicals) out of growing the world's most legendary flower.

This gorgeous and rich instructional guide offers a holistic approach to growing these perennial favorites. Author Barbara Wilde presents tips and advice for choosing healthy roses, preparing the soil, and recognizing and preventing disease; plus, she takes the mystery out of pruning. Perhaps even more valuable, Wilde includes a gallery of more than 100 remarkable roses that are the most hardy and the most disease and pest resistant, making them the best roses for organic gardening. In addition, she takes you beyond the rigidity of a formal rose garden by showing you how to combine roses with other plants, including grasses, herbs, wildflowers, vines, shrubs, perennials, and annuals.

If you are interested in old roses (that I would have no idea where to find) and gardening totally organic this is the book for you. As for me, I was looking for information on growing and the different kinds of today's roses, i.e. hybrid teas, flouribundas, grandiflouras, etc. Not what I was looking for.
