Description

Peter Schneider challenges the notorious myth that roses are difficult to grow, arguing that it’s all about choosing the right petals for the right place! Providing in-depth profiles of hundreds of varieties, Schneider helps you decide which roses will work best in your flower bed or along an eye-catching garden trellis. Simple instructions that use proven techniques make growing roses easy and enjoyable, even in colder climates, while more than 400 gorgeous photos make this book as visually irresistible as it is useful.
