Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

No variety of plants can contribute as much beauty to a garden - and as much satisfaction to the gardener who knows how to grow them - as roses. In this guide you'll find

• photographs of almost 400 roses, with a quick reference to fragrance, winter hardiness, and disease resistance • every important class of rose - Species Roses, Old Garden Roses, Shrubs, Hybrid Teas, Floribundas, Grandifloras, Miniatures, and Climbers • suggestions for carefree border and ground-cover roses • an encyclopedia entry for each plant, noting its uses and limitations • a pest and disease chart that describes the damage, its cause, and ecologically safe controls.

Whether you want to buy a single carefree bush or maintain a whole garden of perfect roses, this Taylor's Guide has everything you need to know to succeed the first time.

Synopsis:

This is a major revision of one of the most popular Taylor's guides. Since 1986, when it was first published, Taylor's Guide to Roses has sold more than 100,000 copies. But in the past few years there have been major, dramatic changes in the market for roses - so major, indeed, that of the 392 roses pictured and described in this book, 102 are new to this edition. Foremost among the changes are replacement of disease-prone roses with heartier varieties and the addition of the new David Austin roses.
