Editorial Reviews

Review

This book will keep readers from being daunted by the prospect of rose gardening. Recommended especially for those new to rose growing. (Library Journal)

Schneider’s book speaks with authority the advice a rose lover needs for extending uses of one of the world’s favorite flowers...this work deserves a place on the shelves of public libraries and of rose lovers. (American Reference Books Annual)

This is the rose encyclopedia I’ve sought. It speaks to the city gardener and has plenty for the landed gentry as well. To all, I’d say this is the perfect book to spend a day with before the season starts or as it unfolds. (The Philadelphia Inquirer)

His book could well change any notions you might have of these plants being fussy and frail.

From the Inside Flap

Grow Roses with Confidence

 

Roses have almost unlimited potential in your yard or garden. They will thrive in tidy deck containers, lend months of show-stopping color to perennial borders, shower cascades of blooms down trellises, and cluster together in sturdy property-line hedges. Gardening with roses is as simple as choosing the right cultivar for your conditions, location, and needs.

 

Rose expert Peter Schneider understands what roses like and do not like, what they can be coaxed to do and what will make them wither and fail. Everyone, Schneider insists, can enjoy success with roses when given good growing information. A delicate rose that thrives in California will probably not fare as well in a Michigan garden, but he suggests plenty of other varieties that will reward your efforts with long-lasting beauty.

 

Writing from his experience as a rose gardener in Ohio, Schneider describes the characteristics of hundreds of roses and how best to use them in the garden. He includes thorough coverage of hardy shrub and heritage roses, the varieties that form the backbone of his own garden and are often perfect choices for cold-winter climates. Here are roses that satisfy every desire -- from blooming into spectacular cutting roses to climbing around structures or along the ground.

 

An extensive section on planting, pruning, and general maintenance reassures budding rosarians that, with only a few hours of attention spent during each week of the growing season, roses will provide satisfaction, beauty, fragrance, and pleasure unequaled by any other flowering plant.

Format: Hardcover
As a midwestern dweller interested in growing roses, I can say that many rose books assume that most growers live on the West coast, in the South, or even in England, so much of the advice is not applicable to those of us living in the colder and more negligible "flyover" states.

But Peter Schneider gardens and grows over 1200 roses in Ohio (Zone 5). Just about every rose he recommends in this book is hardy in his growing zone, and many to colder ones yet. He very helpfully indicates just how tall the roses actually get in his zone -- so the climber rose, Zephirine Drouhin, for example, which is usually listed as reaching 10 ft in height, only gets to be a 4-ft bush in his garden because it is only marginally hardy. And he also tells us how well each variety repeats bloom for him. This is very useful information for those planning gardens.

Much of the book reads like a series of informal chats with an experienced rose grower who shares all kinds of useful, "insider" tips, information and amusing stories with us. Lucky us!

There are many beautiful photographs of the roses, although not every variety is pictured, which would have been helpful to those of us who are not already familiar with hundreds of varieties. But his advice concerning rose care is some of the most helpful I have read to date, particularly concerning mulching, winter care and pests/diseases.

Altogether a very useful book for rose growers, and particularly recommended for northern and midwestern would-be rosarians.

Several years ago I had the pleasure of visiting the author's garden, although I do not know him personally. In this book, he candidly talks about his experiences with roses he grows. The photographs are excellent, showing the true color and type of the roses. It is very easy to read as he writes as though he is talking to you. He gives good rose care techniques. Other members of the rose society I belong to have enjoyed the book, so it appeals to all levels of rose gardeners.

This is a great book, well written and detailed as well as being beautifully illistrated. However when I had made my selections and tried to find a nursury which had the selections I was dismayed. Many of the roses he describes I was unable to find at any nursury and what the nursuries had were not described in the book. When I emailed the author however he was very friendly and helpful. He publishes a rose list which supposedly list where to find each rose. I ordered the list, however it's an additional $25.00.

A very useful book for any northern, cold winters, rose gardener. Especially useful to me, because I live so close by to the author. I know then that his info will better pertain to me as a rose grower. I am a somewhat novice at rose gardening, as I only have 6 rose plants, but this book spells out all the useful info that you need. Good info on fertilizing, planting not only bare root roses but also on own root roses too, watering, and even protecting your rose for the winter.

I would highly recommend this book even if it had no text. Well worth the price for the pictures alone.

First and most importantly; this is the distillation of one man's experience during thirty years of rose gardening in Ohio. Ohio is not known as a place where any rose you plant will thrive effortlessly. You may not live in Ohio but you certainly have difficult spots where what you want to grow refuses to oblige. Peter Schneider offers alternatives for both varieties and location.

If you are a planner his knowledge based recommendations will save you a bunch of money. If you are, like me, an impulse buyer, thorough pre-season reading may well save you from yourself.

Roses are a passion and all too often our passion is specialized. For example I have books that only pertain to modern hybrid teas, or 'bullet proof' varieties of modern carefree shrub roses. Other books that refuse to even look at anything introduced after about 1930. Some delight in the impossible to find, never heard of them roses.

Schneider seems to just love all types of roses. He writes factually and is careful to remind his readers that he is writing about his own experience and that yours may be different.

This book is divided into three parts. Part One is a general introduction. Part Two, the largest section, covers roses in the garden and the landscape. He covers specimen roses, beds and borders, varieties for cutting, miniatures, climbers, tree roses and growing roses in containers. Part Three is the "how to" section and it is pretty comprehensive. Finally there is an excellent index.

Every rose in this book is commercially available (or was at the time of publication) This is not your ultimate encyclopedia of rose varieties, it is much more useful than that!
