BOOKS ON ROSES.19.
Green Essentials - Perfect roses
The English have a love affair with the rose, but being blighted by so many pests and diseases it has become the Achilles heel of the true organic gardener. Also, with the withdrawal of many of the popular chemicals more conventional gardeners will have to turn to organic management of roses. Essentially the reader is able to make an educated decision through helpful illustrations and examples of disease resistant varieties. Roses suited to practically every situation found in a garden are recommended. Information about perfume, height and flowering period is also given. This is followed by planting and good husbandry tips. The final chapter describes pests and diseases with succinct information as it poses the problem and sets out the solution. The book's style gives quick and easy reference for the busy gardener through a helpful yearly planner.
