Everyday Roses: How to Grow Knock Out and Other Easy-Care Garden Roses Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

More and more homeowners are adding easy-care roses to their gardens after discovering their versatility, range of color, and season-long foliage and bloom cycle. In this book, rose expert Paul Zimmerman debunks common rose myths and outdated care instructions, and instead imparts practical rose care advice in a fun and accessible voice. Readers will find helpful suggestions for choosing roses based on landscape need, tips on what to look for when buying roses, new techniques for the best way to plant roses, and sensible time-saving methods to maintain their roses throughout the year. Aimed at gardeners who want the beauty of roses without the fuss, this book offers an approach that is more accessible and environmentally friendly than competing volumes—and no other book in the current market focuses exclusively on modern roses and getting the most out of them.
