Format: Paperback
This is an excellent guide to integrating roses into a garden with other plants instead of keeping them in a separate location in a bare, mulched rose bed. Well written text and good pictures.

Shame on the publisher, though, for such poor copyediting! Next time pay a good copyeditor or proofreader and spare yourself the embarrassment of roses "baring their hips" (bearing, perhaps?) and "while your nose is ravaging the blooms" (really? RAVAGING?) and miscellaneous omitted words.

Format: Paperback
The author's rose experience gives the knowledgeable rosarian broader understanding and the novice rich new territory to discover. Roses become assets for gardens rather than specimens separated from the whole. If I had this book when I first began my rose adventures it would have been a constant source of help and inspiration.

I was very happy to find that a professional okays the planting of other flowers around roses rather than just having them sitting in lonely positions surrounded by bare dirt in formal rose garden. The author did, however, spend more time talking about individual roses than he did about the mechanics/care needed for success in the garden beds in mixing the plantings. I'm glad I read the book.

Format: Paperback
For years I ordered 6 months of blooming plants for my mother. They came and they all bloomed delightfully. This year's order was a bust. They came, they sat, they never came up. When I wrote to ask for another batch, I was told I could be refunded the one past order. This year I will order from another company. Too hard for a 93 year old to watch dirt in a basket on her windowsill.
