Complete Roses will certainly appeal to anyone who wants roses in their garden. It is ideal for gardeners who have been afraid to grow roses as well as for those who already grow these lovely flowers and want to learn more about them. This in-depth guide to roses takes all the mystery out of growing these plants, but leaves the beauty. Unlike many competitive books that originate in Great Britain and do not address North American growing issues, this book covers the effects of local climate on roses. Readers will learn how to care for the plants easily and efficiently, prepare and maintain the soil for optimal plant health, control pests and disease with environmentally friendly techniques, and prune every type of rose. Complete Roses includes a comprehensive list of descriptions of all rose classes, and descriptions of more than 100 rose varieties and cultivars. Over 300 beautiful color photographs and 30 watercolor paintings of plants and how-to sequences add to the substance of this beautiful book. Special sections include a detailed discussion of soil science as it pertains to rose nutrition, and two cross-referenced indexes cover plants and topics.
