Grow Roses with Confidence

Roses have almost unlimited potential in your yard or garden. They will thrive in tidy deck containers, lend months of show-stopping color to perennial borders, shower cascades of blooms down trellises, and cluster together in sturdy property-line hedges. Gardening with roses is as simple as choosing the right cultivar for your conditions, location, and needs.

Rose expert Peter Schneider understands what roses like and do not like, what they can be coaxed to do and what will make them wither and fail. Everyone, Schneider insists, can enjoy success with roses when given good growing information. A delicate rose that thrives in California will probably not fare as well in a Michigan garden, but he suggests plenty of other varieties that will reward your efforts with long-lasting beauty.

Writing from his experience as a rose gardener in Ohio, Schneider describes the characteristics of hundreds of roses and how best to use them in the garden. He includes thorough coverage of hardy shrub and heritage roses, the varieties that form the backbone of his own garden and are often perfect choices for cold-winter climates. Here are roses that satisfy every desire — from blooming into spectacular cutting roses to climbing around structures or along the ground.

An extensive section on planting, pruning, and general maintenance reassures budding rosarians that, with only a few hours of attention spent during each week of the growing season, roses will provide satisfaction, beauty, fragrance, and pleasure unequaled by any other flowering plant.

Synopsis:

Many people think roses are difficult to grow. Peter Schneider puts that fear to rest by showing you that when it comes to roses, it's all about location, location, location. The right rose will thrive when planted in the perfect spot.
