This book will keep readers from being daunted by the prospect of rose gardening. Recommended especially for those new to rose growing.
His book could well change any notions you might have of these plants being fussy and frail.
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.
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.
