Compiled by three of North America's finest botanic gardens -- Boerner Botanical Gardens in Milwaukee, Memphis Botanic Garden, and Old Westbury Gardens in New York -- in consultation with five other great botanic gardens, here is the most complete and user-friendly guide to rose gardening ever devised, a unique compendium of the best advice available, usable in all parts of the United States and Canada, for all types of roses.
The information assembled by this unprecedented collaboration is presented in five chapters:
I. Introduction: definitions, history, and botany; the basic gardening philosophies of the experts who have contributed to the book.
II. Plant Selector: more than two hundred glorious, full-color photos of roses of every variety, from rugged species roses to the newest hybrid teas, with detailed captions describing size, coloration, and requirements ... full descriptions of their cultivation and maintenance, including some dissenting information and opinions from the consultant gardeners ... additional color illustrations of landscaping and combinations, techniques particular to a specific plant, and its history in human affairs.
III. Design: the principles of designing a rose garden that works, a garden that is not only healthy and attractive hut creative as well, with photographs and diagrams of successful examples.
IV. Techniques: how-to information illustrated with black-and-white, step-by-step photos in minute detail; the experts' explanations of how they keep their own roses both beautiful and healthy using integrated pest-management procedures.
V. Special Conditions: new methods for growing roses in extreme climates, in small spaces, and in containers.
This volume also includes a complete glossary, carefully verified source lists, and full indexes.
The professional horticulturists at the great gardens of the United States and Canada are passionate about their endeavors -- studying every trend, refining every technique for making things grow and thrive. Now, for the first time, they have joined forces to share their love and expertise in a guide that no single individual or institution could have created. The American Garden Guides: Rose Gardening is the indispensable handbook that will help your rose garden prosper and grow.
