Product Description

Watch, listen and learn as you join Ellen Minet, Head Rosarian of Long Island's Planting Fields Arboretum, on a most unusual and delightful walk through four seasons of caring for over 700 roses that grace the 409 acres of unique grounds and formal gardens that is the Coe Estate on Long Island's famed "Gold Coast".

The first in the "Look at Life Garden Series", this DVD brings a completely fresh approach to the "how-to" genre.

Seeing is learning. Watching Ellen and her assistants prune, shape, feed and fertilize you become an apprentice to learning in a whole new way about the stewardship of roses. Ellen imparts her knowledge in ways more interesting, inspiring, and accessible than any found within countless gardening books lining the shelves of your local bookstore or library.

Dispelling the myth that roses are "complicated and fussy" and created for rose lovers everywhere, "Secrets of the Rose Gardener promises to offer much to all in a most effective and enjoyable way.

Special features include: An interactive guide to step by step reviews, "Beauty of the Roses" music video and loop, A short film taking a look inside Coe mansion, as well as a how-to sharpen your shears video.


"I can't imagine any rosarian who wouldn't want to own this DVD...for expert and novice alike." -- Pat Shanley,president of the Manhattan Rose Society an afffilate of the ARS

"I loved the realistic approach of the film"…unlike other how to’s that are obviously set up, you really get it." -- Scott Vergara of Starr Roses
