Publisher Comments:

The "Rose Doctor" is about to make another house call — to your home and garden. Reach for the world's most popular book on roses, newly revised and expanded, with over 3 million copies sold in earlier editions. The 1990s have seen many new varieties and ideas for care, such as a new worldwide interest in miniature climbers and shrub roses; here you'll find over 150 new varieties illustrated and described for the first time in any book, along with some just published, greatly simplified new methods of pruning. Yet the basics that have made this the all-time best-seller are still here, and better than ever. Start with a closeup look at a rose plant, and learn its parts, view the various types, and take a guided tour through the seasons. Then comes an encyclopedic description of 388 of the most popular and most readily available rose varieties, all shown in full-color photos, with charts that detail the number of petals, colors, fragrances, foliage, flowering perrods, and pruning methods of each. Discover your favorites among the varieties of Tea, Floribunda, and Patio roses, and the features of miniatures, ground-cover roses, climbers, scramblers, and different types of shrub rose, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of growing each type. Then bring the Rose Doctor along with you to make your purchases selections and get advice on where to plant them, whether in beds, borders, rockeries, hedges, screens, walls, or trees. There's information on planting and care, pest and disease control, displaying cut flowers, breeding, and exhibiting in competitions. Appropriate to its variegated theme, you'll find full color on every page.
