Customer Review

on June 23, 2011
I'm not a rose nut, but I've raised or tried raising roses in many locations (New Jersey, New Delhi, Copenhagen, Rhode Island), with several approaches (Bayer's all in one fertilizer/control, rosetone only, miracle grow, horse manure and mulch). Scanniello's book is by far the best book I've read on roses. He organizes it by month, what you need to be doing or thinking about every month of the year if you enjoy growing roses. It is the most logical, least 'cranky' approach I've seen. It also is written by a real writer who just loves everything about roses. Scanniello's love and enthusiasm about every aspect of managing a big rose garden comes across to any one who enjoys these plants, and wants to be a better rose grower.

A lot of rose books are either way too technical and not able to explain why something is important, or they are picture books of impossibly perfect plants being displayed by professional growers. This is a beautiful book written with a life time of experience and lifetime of teaching how to get the best from your roses. It is the only rose book I would recommend, and I would recommend it to beginners or 'experts.' It's like having a wise patient friend right at hand for those days or summers when your roses just drive you nuts.

Oh, Amzon's price was a third of the books cost in Barnes and Noble, I used the free shipping option and no sales tax. This was a great deal and it arrived in four days.
