Gardening With Old RosesBook - 1996
"The rose is one of the most popular and celebrated of flowers and recent years have seen a revival of interest in cottage-garden varieties, with their scent and full-petalled flowers. Gardening with Old Roses is an essential companion for all those who recognize the charms of these old-fashioned varieties but need guidance on how best to use and care for them." "In this book, illustrated with over 200 glorious colour photographs, John Scarman helps you to recreate the style and the joys of earlier gardens, such as those planted by influential gardeners like Gertrude Jekyll and Vita Sackville West. He gives ideas for planting roses as they used to be, with other herbaceous plants and herbs, and shows how to prune them and keep them healthy."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
