Overview

This book is for everyone who loves roses, whether the casual grower with a few beloved plants by the front door or the enthusiastic collector with hundreds of varieties.

The Natural Rose Gardener contains complete descriptions of more than 300 superior roses--new shrub varieties, old garden roses, David Austin English roses, recent award-winning hybrid teas, floribundas, grandifloras, miniatures, and climbers. It also provides complete instructions and detailed drawings showing how and when to plant, prune, and fertilize, and how to use the latest nonchemical controls for garden pests.

Graced with 170 large color photos, the book tells how to select roses adapted to a wide range of growing conditions, from the cold-winter North to the arid Southwest, and it explains new ways to plan a long and colorful season of blooming roses.

"Takes the fear out of growing roses."--Bloomsbury Review

"What makes this book different is the author's focus on landscaping with roses naturally. Walheim believes roses should be integrated into the landscape. The book's other important message is that you don't have to maintain an arsenal of toxic chemicals to grow roses."--Sunset

Lance Walheim has written more than twenty gardening books. He lives in Exeter, California.
